Billy Joe Saunders Likely Back on Murray-Mitchell Bill
Billy Joe Saunders is motoring again after coming through his clash with Kevin Hammond last weekend.
The 2008 Olympian had a frustrating 2010 when he was forced out of the ring for long periods with a hand injury.
But the 20-year-old has been in fine form since returning to action in December.
He's fought three times in five months - and delivered two impressive stoppage victories, as well as a points win.
And he could be fighting for a title later this summer.
The Hertfordshire traveller is likely to be back in action on July 9 when Kevin Mitchell and John Murray meet at the ExCeL Arena, London.
Talented Billy Joe could even get a championship crack on that card.
He's had to watch fellow Olympians James DeGale and Frankie Gavin make rapid progress in the professional ranks.
And it could be his turn to catch them up.
"I'm ready," said Saunders. "But I will fight whoever Frank Warren wants to put in front of me.
"I never ducked out of a fight as an amateur, and I won't as a pro."

Billy Joe has got some vicious body shots. Hope this kid will go on to bigger and better things in future. Good prospect for the UK.Comment by War-Robbo on 05-29-2011
Looked very impressive at the o2 but his opponent obviously wasn't much but he looks a good prospect...Post a Comment/View More User Comments (5)
