Billy Joe Saunders says his footwork, knowhow, skillset, mindset and brain makes him the only boxer who can possibly unlock the door in Canelo ahead of their huge unification showdown.
Unbeaten Saunders (30-0, 14 KOs) faces Canelo (55-1-2, 37 KOs) on May 8, with the WBC, WBA, WBO and Ring Magazine super-middleweight titles on the line.
Saunders knows just how big an opportunity it is, and he is extremely confident that he has the tools required to defeat the Mexican.
Saunders said: “Canelo, I’m ready to rock and roll. 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.
“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. 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.”
