Billy Joe Saunders enters his name into the “Canelo” sweepstakes!

Frank Warren of Queensberry Promotions and promoter of former WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders, recently commented on a potential clash with unified champion Canelo Alvarez.

“I don’t think he’s [Canelo] avoiding me, but there are plenty of people he can pick apart from Billy Joe Saunders”

“Who wants to fight a southpaw who’s hard to hit?”

From a match-up perspective, this is an attractive fight. First, there’s a natural rivalry between these two fighters; especially with the Brit’s comments regarding the Mexican superstar failing a drug test, then failing a drug test of his own.

Second, it’s a stylistic test for the unified champion because many boxing fans remember his struggles with Erislandy Lara, who also has a slick southpaw style.

Last, it’s a can’t-miss financially!

Both fighters have strong fan bases, and Billy Joe Saunders’ bombastic personality will make for an excellent promotion.

If Golden Boy Promotions is looking for a lucrative September fight, this definitely should be in competition with a potential Callum Smith or Demetrius Andrade bout that are both also under consideration.

It’ll be interesting to see how Oscar De La Hoya responds to this call out.
