Saunders Eyes Super Middleweight Supremacy
While Eddie Hearn sees Billy Joe Saunders and Callum Smith as Canelo Alvarez’ next opponents, Saunders is looking at both of them in his path to unify the super middleweight division.
“It’s no secret I want the big fights now,” Saunders told Sky Sports of his 2020 plans. “The one that is most talked about and my name is linked to and I would say I’m favourite for is the Canelo fight.
“Hopefully, Eddie (Hearn) can make that and MTK, and get the show on the road. I’ve left it to my management team MTK. They’re very confident along with Eddie that this fight can be made. So for the fans sake and mine, I really hope this fight can be made in the New Year 2020.
“I believe I’ve got the beating of him but I just want that golden chance,” Saunders said of Alvarez. And Saunders won’t stop there, as he feels a UK super-fight with Smith has huge potential.
“I think Callum Smith makes a fantastic fight for the fans. Me and him, both British, it would be so easy to make. None of these big names want to fight me or him, so let’s fight each other. It’s either Canelo or Callum I want,” Saunders said.
