Billy Joe Saunders is looking to execute one of the greatest upsets from a British fighter on away soil tonight when he squares off with pound-for-pound great Canelo Alvarez. The WBO super-middleweight world champion is in the shape of his life as he looks to unify the division against the Mexican, who will table his WBA and WBC titles, with the Ring Magazine belt also up for grabs.
Saunders and his team have continuously demanded a level playing field heading into the contest.
First of all, it was claimed that a British judge would be amongst the panel but that is not the case, something that has angered Saunders’ father Tommy.
Furthermore, Saunders senior has also been frustrated by promoter Hearn, who he feels wants his other fighter Canelo to win.
On Tuesday, Saunders’ camp were left angered by the 20ft ring requested by Canelo as the fight was thrown into doubt.

Saunders plans to taunt Canelo over KO
Billy Joe Saunders says he intends to remind Canelo Alvarez in the ring that he claimed he would KO the WBO world champion inside three rounds.
“Intimidation in the sport goes a long, long way,” Saunders told DAZN.
“Also control. There will be no control in me through their media status.
“There will be none of this turning up when he wants, status, he’s the star of the show.
“I don’t give a s*** if he’s the star of the show.
“He may be the star of the show on paper but trust me it will not be working all his own way.
“He will have a very, very big shock. He will knock me out in three rounds.
“I want him to hold that thought that he will knock me out in three rounds.
“On the third round when we are in the ring I’m going to go ‘go on then, this is your round. Knock me out.’ Then we’ll see what he does…”
Meanwhile, Reynoso has made it clear he’s instructed his man to go all-out for the knockout.
“It annoys me,” he told Little Giant Boxing when speaking of Saunders. “Not only about us but the trash talk to Mexican reporters, with people of Mexico.
“I never want to say we are going to do it by KO, I say we are going to win.
“But this time around I do want Canelo to win by KO.”
