Middleweight warrior Gabriel Rosado has once again laid into reigning WBO champ Billy Joe Saunders. Fans may recall how Saunders was offered a fight with Rosado for the Canelo-Smith card, only for Saunders to turn the fight down, saying it wouldn’t elevate his career. Rosado, 23-9(13) was fuming and he now says that Saunders is chasing money and nothing more and that the unbeaten southpaw only wants a fight with Gennady Golovkin for the big … Read Article
Who next for middleweight ruler Gennady Golovkin? Unfortunately, it won’t be the man, the opponent, we all want it to be, as Mexican superstar Saul Canelo Alvarez insists he needs time to fully develop into a fully-fledged 160-pounder and as a result this particular super-fight will not happen until next September at the earliest (if ever!). So GGG will look to stay active against the best available opposition.… Read Article
Can unbeaten Billy Joe Saunders, the WBO middleweight champion, do something, anything, against middleweight king Gennady Golovkin? Triple-G called out the southpaw last night, just after he had broken and beaten a brave Kell Brook, and Saunders, 23-0(12) has answered in kind, saying on social media how he is “ready when you are.”
Saunders has not yet boxed this year, his last ring appearance coming in December of 2015, when he scored a most impressive … Read Article
Chris Eubank Junior insists that the “bad blood” between he and the only man to have beaten him as a pro, Billy Joe Saunders, ensures the two will fight again. But the reigning British champion says there is no way he will ever accept the 80-20 purse split WBO middleweight champ Saunders offered to his father in a recent spat on social media. Though Eubank Jr lost the 12-round decision in November of 2014 he … Read Article
It looked like WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders would appear on the big September 17th card in Las Vegas topped by Canelo Alvarez against Britain’s defending WBO 154-pound champion Liam Smith, but now, with Saunders turning down a fight with tough and experienced warrior Gabriel Rosado, it seems unlikely the southpaw will be making his U.S debut next month.
And Rosado, who says he signed a contract to fight Saunders “a week ago,” has … Read Article
WBO middleweight ruler Billy Joe Saunders has launched a scathing attack on Mexican star Saul Canelo Alvarez. As fans know, Alvarez recently vacated his WBC middleweight title rather than agree to fight Gennady Golovkin (at least he hasn’t agreed to face GGG yet). This has angered many fight fans, Mexican fight fans in particular of course, and Saunders, in speaking with boxingnews24, said Canelo should be ashamed of himself.… Read Article

WBO World Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders has condemned England prop Joe Marler for calling Wales prop Samson Lee ‘gypsy boy’ after an altercation during their recent Six Nations match at Twickenham.… Read Article
There are a number of talented fighters out there today, all calling themselves a world middleweight champion. In reality, Saul Alvarez is the real middleweight king, while unbeaten and avoided Gennady Golovkin is widely viewed as the best in the world at 160. But this doesn’t mean the other belt holders, Danny Jacobs and Billy Joe Saunders amongst them, cannot engage in interesting and potentially exciting fights.
And “regular” WBA middleweight ruler Danny Jacobs has … Read Article
