Canelo vs. Billy Joe Saunders 8/5/21
Super middleweight champion of the World Boxing Council, Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez, is going looking for WBO champion, Billy Joe Saunders, of Britain this Saturday, as part of the Cinco de Mayo celebrations in the United States, at the Dallas Cowboys stadium, in Arlington, Texas.
Solo Canelo held a meeting with the media, which Saunders didn`t attend. Billy Joe was a no show! Regarding the fight, Saul sees it this way: “I have experience, I am a more mature fighter. Saunders thinks he’ll give me a boxing lesson. We’ll see. I’m not the same boy that I was five or six years ago. He can say what he wants, on Saturday night, we will see a different level of fighting. I hope I don’t need the judges decision that night.
“We have always been open about what the short-term and long-term plans have been. I want to unify the 168-pound division, and Caleb Plant would be next in line to secure that goal.
“The goal is to be undisputed at 168 pounds and then we’ll see. I think I could stay at super middleweight until the end of my career. I think I have about seven years left until I retire.
“I am totally focused on winning on Saturday. He must fight me, that must happen, it is not a problem. I’m just going to the ring and do my job. Saunders has made excuses and talked a lot. I’m just going to go in and do what I have to do.”
The fight, which is promoted by Matchroom Boxing, will be broadcast on DAZN.
