Billy Joe Saunders is perhaps one of the best English boxers competing today. Born in Hertfordshire, England, boxing is in the blood, as his grandfather was a famous bare-knuckle boxer in the community.
Saunders made his professional boxing debut on Feb. 28, 2009, and quickly rose through the ranks. Remaining unbeaten to this day, Saunders defeated Andy Lee on Dec. 19, 2015, to win the WBO middleweight championship.
His noted victories thus far include Lee, Chris Eubank Jr., Yoann Bloyer and Artur Akavov.
