He will be fighting him in Texas in which Saunders shouldn’t even think about tippy toeing his way to victory. Is not going to happen in Texas. In Texas you going to have to take it to Canelo and take the title from him. Not rely on the judges. A fighter should not go in the ring to leave it in the judges hands.
Tyson Fury the wbc heavyweight champion of the world also has his displeasure on how he believes his friend Saunders is getting unfairly treated. Fury should worry about finalizing the most important fight of his career and most important fight in boxing as the whole world is anticipating the UNDISPUTED SHOWDOWN between Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury. Fury should not enable Saunders excuses. Actually Fury should advice him to approach this fight like he did vs Deontay Wilder the 2nd time around and not leave it in the judges hands.
Billy Joe Saunders should have more confidence in his skills and timely adjustments than the lack of confidence of the ring size and judges.
