Billy Joe Saunders on Canelo Alvarez – “Nobody is Unbeatable”

Last updated

Canelo Alvarez will clash with Billy Joe Saunders in a WBC, WBA Super, WBO and Ring Magazine World Super-Middleweight unification blockbuster on May 8, live worldwide on DAZN (except Mexico).

Alvarez dismantled WBC mandatory challenger Avni Yildirim in three rounds at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami and next he takes a giant step in his quest to become undisputed by facing the WBO king Saunders at a venue to be announced soon.

The UK fighter last fought on December 4th against countryman Martin Murray. Saunders is 29-0 in his pro career, and he looks for the biggest win of his life when he faces Alvarez on May 8th.

‘Canelo, I’m ready to rock and roll,’ said Billy Joe Saunders following the Canelo vs Yildirim fight. ‘You have to dare to be great and you aren’t going to be a great if you don’t beat the greats. I believe I am the only one with the footwork, knowhow, skillset, mindset and brain to unlock that door in Canelo.”

‘He’s the main man in the sport and the face of boxing” Billy Joe Saunders continued. “You have to give him respect, he hasn’t ducked anyone, he’s beaten good names, but nobody is unbeatable, and I believe I have got the tools to beat him if I use them properly and if the game-plan comes off that I believe works.”
Billy Joe finished by saying that he is looking to ‘confirm his legacy’ with a win over Canelo Alvarez. ‘I am looking at the golden ticket to cement my legacy, and that’s how you have to go in there to beat him. I’ve won everything from Southern Area to World titles, I could say ’˜I’ve won it all, been to the Olympics, I’m unbeaten – I’ll see you later’. But I’ve only just turned 31, I’ve got no miles on the clock, haven’t taken any punishment – I believe he’s been in harder fights than me and has more miles, so I want to cement my legacy and beat him.’
