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.

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…
