Saunders: Winner Of Andrade Fight Is Best Middleweight
Billy Joe Saunders makes no bones about the fact that no one else at middleweight wants to fight he or his opponent on October 20th, Demetrius Andrade.
“This is such a big fight. The two main men at Middleweight at the moment is GGG and Canelo – and neither of them want to fight me or Demetrius. There’s a lot of smoke and mist in the division right now, and when it clears up I will be the man standing there,” Saunders said.
“All jokes and trash talk aside, this is going to be a really good fight. Does anyone want to fight Demetrius? No. Does anyone want to fight me? No. We have to fight each other to prove who the number one guy is. Technically, we are the best two in the division, and the winner is going to be number one. I’m World champion, I’ve been more active, I’ve boxed the better opposition – but I have to beat this man.
“There’s too much at stake in this fight to even think about losing – and I will prove that I am number one. If I turn up at my 100 percent best, it’s good enough to beat him. He’s a great fighter and he’s been avoided, our paths have crossed and we have to fight. The winner is number one.”
