I’LL HUFF AND PUFF AND I’LL BLOW DOWN YOUR HOUSE | CANELO VS. SAUNDERS!

Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez’ (55-1-2, 37 KOs) demolition job of Avni Yildirim went the way we believed it would, the The Turkish Wolf amounting to nothing more than a toothless pup so immediately the focus of the boxing world flittered from one name to another with a common denominator, Billy Joe Saunders (30-0, 14 KOs) being the man closely assembling a solid match-up.

The curiosity that surrounds Saunders is mainly because of the scintillating display over former world champion David Lemieux who was made to look quite ordinary. This performance proved the capability of the fighter which is often missing even against sub-par opposition.

Canelo on the other hand is the polar opposite, like a wrecking ball he has torn through all challengers regardless of weight or stature, his loss to Floyd Mayweather seems all but a distant memory of the man that today props up most Pound 4 Pound listings.

This match-up provides a lot of questions, more so in Saunders’ case but nonetheless, I think we can all agree that the contest will be a lot more intriguing than that of Canelo v Yildirim or even Saunders v Coceres so that being said, which man will be the wolf in this narrative, we shall see on May 8th.

I've been in the boxing industry for over 16 years but been a fan for almost double that figure. I'm the proud owner of TopClassBoxing which continues to go from strength to strength as we strive to give fight fans a voice to be heard amongst the community. I've also had several articles published by reputable magazines and you can usually catch me around ringside.
