Billy Joe Saunders-Blandamura in Play For EBU Belt

By Per Ake Persson

It will be Emanuele Blandamura (22-0) and Billy Joe Saunders (19-0) that will fight for the vacant EBU middleweight title. Blandamura is thus stripped of the EU title he won January 25 in an upset win over Marcos Nader. The EBU will open all received purse bids March 3 at noon in Rome. Saunders, who holds the British and Commonwealth titles, must be regarded as a big favourite in this one but Blandamura´s conditioning and workrate played a big part in his win over Nader and may also play a part here.

B.J.Saunders is surely one to watch, but needs to start taking a few fights outside of the UK to get his name about! He's Commonwealth champion so how about sending him to Australia, Canada & South Africa for a couple…
