boxing KSI vs Logan Paul 2: Billy Joe Saunders wants to undo No 1 target ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in 2020
Boxing KSI vs Logan Paul 2 :The unbeaten Brit makes the first defence of his WBO super-middleweight world title this Sunday morning in Los Angeles, live on Sky Sports Box Office, and is eager to make an impression on his American debut.
‘Canelo’ became a four-weight world champion after brutally stopping Sergey Kovalev at 175lbs this past weekend and now Saunders wants to be next in line for the Mexican pound-for-pound king.
“I want Canelo, they keep saying he’s the best. Floyd Mayweather is the only man to beat him, I know I can be the second man to beat him,” Saunders exclusively told Sky Sports.
“It’d be a very tough challenge but there is something inside of me that I’ve known since day one when I turned pro. I knew our paths would cross and I’m 100% sure that I’d beat him.
“I might move up to 175lbs and then I become mandatory to him. He either fights me or vacates.
“Give me a fair playing field and I know I have the beating of him. I do have the lock to undo ‘Canelo’. I’m feeling the best I have, I’m ready to rock and roll, I want these big fights.”
Despite his interest in ‘Canelo’, the Hatfield 30-year old is refusing to overlook the more immediate challenge of unbeaten Argentinian Coceres.
“I’m very excited for my American debut and the chance show the American fans what I’m about. I want to put my name in line for the likes of ‘Canelo’ and ‘GGG’.
“What goes through my head for this weekend is whoever puts in the best performance will steal the show.
