Billy Joe Saunders says he can beat Gennady Golovkin and Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez
A major fight to define Billy Joe Saunders has so far eluded him but there can be no more false dawns for Britain’s experienced, unbeaten two-weight world champion, who could be a thorn in the side of boxing’s biggest names.
Saunders and his silky, awkward, southpaw style has long been the type of problem that Gennady Golovkin and co simply do not want to entertain. Why risk everything chasing Saunders around the ring and hitting nothing but air for 12 rounds? No thanks.
Now a link-up with promoter Eddie Hearn should result in opportunities for Saunders to test that theory.
