Billy Joe Saunders will be fighting in the greatest fight of his career, come the 8th of May. The Brit will be defending his Defending WBO super-middleweight title against the one and only Canelo Alvarez. Saunders is still undefeated in his career and he will be going into his 31st fight brimming with confidence.
Elsewhere, BJS’ friend Tyson Fury who is all set to face Anthony Joshua tweeted about how bright of a future the middleweight would be having. He also mentioned that Canelo Alvarez has a plethora of experience but never has he ever fought a fighting Gyspy like BJS.
‘We are cut from the same cloth, same breed of animals‘ – Tyson Fury on Billy Joe Saunders
Fury tweeted, “.@bjsaunders_ is 100% mentally in the right place, he knows what he has to do and he will do it, he will rise up and claim greatness. I was wrote off many times in the past and have always come through, We are cut from the same cloth, same breed of animals…”
He further wrote, “Canelo has fought them all but never a Fighting Gypsy, we are a different breed of animal to anything he has come across before, #YESHEWILL domination with the help of God.”
Billy Joe Saunders is coming off a unanimous decision victory against Martin Murray at the SSE Arena in London on the 4th of December, last year, whereas, Canelo Alvarez is coming off a victory against Avni Yildrim as recent as February 27. It was considered by many as a disgraceful matchup for Alvarez, as he eased past the Turk.
