Billy Joe Saunders

Billy Joe Saunders became a two-weight World Champion with a shutout points win over Shefat Isufi in Stevenage last year, outclassing his Serbian opponent over 12 rounds to land the WBO 168lbs title. 

The Hatfield southpaw's first World Title came against Irish fight legend Andy Lee at Manchester Arena in December 2015 when he floored the former Champion twice in the third round on route to a majority decision to claim the WBO Middleweight crown. Successful defences followed against Artur Akavov, Willie Monroe Jr and, most notably, a career-best performance against David Lemieux on away soil in Canada where the 29-year-old star dismantled former IBF ruler Lemieux over 12 masterful rounds.

A former Southern Area, Commonwealth, British, WBO International and European Champion at Middleweight, Saunders is confident that his move to Matchroom will secure mega-fights with the likes of Canelo, GGG and Demetrius Andrade.
