Bradley Pryce Vows To Knock Out Billy Joe Saunders
Welsh puncher Bradley Pryce hasn't seen Billy Joe Saunders fight before, but still believes he will knock out the young unbeaten star this Friday (1st June) at the York Hall, Bethnal Green.
Pryce challenges for Saunders' Commonwealth Middleweight title which will be televised live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 456/Virgin Ch. 546).
The 31-year-old from Newbridge has pulled of big upsets before against previously unbeaten Anthony Small to take his Commonwealth title and undefeated Russian prospects Ivan Kirpa and Sergey Stepkin.
"I wouldn't know Billy Joe Saunders if he walked in my gym today, I've never watched him or seen him fight before," said Pryce. "What I do know is that I will knock him out on Friday night at the York Hall and get back in the big time.
"I generally never watch fights of my opponents, some of my best wins against the likes of Small, Stepkin plus Ossie Duran were fighters that I had never watched before. I'm confident in my ability and I've got nothing to worry about against Saunders, at my best I can beat anyone out there and you'll see that against Saunders."
Pryce reckons heavy-handed Saunders' stunning 30 second win over Tony Hill to claim the Commonwealth title at the Royal Albert Hall last month isn't anything to worry about either.
"I read about Saunders' quick win against Tony Hill, if he can do that to me then fair play he's going to be a world champion, but I'm far and away the best he's faced so far," continued Pryce.
"For the first six rounds I reckon he'll be dangerous and I've prepared for that with my trainer Gary Lockett, but after six rounds the fight’s mine."
And Pryce is fired up to inflict the first loss on Olympian Saunders' unbeaten 13 fight record.
"I've never been so pumped up for a fight before, I love a challenge and taking Saunders' unbeaten record is a massive incentive for me. For the last two years my face hasn't appeared on fight poster and seeing my photo on the poster for this fight with Saunders has given me a huge boost.
"It's going to be massive shock when I beat him, but I've told you here first."
