Frank Warren Eyes Saunders-Korobov on Chisora-Fury II

By Rick Reeno

One man's loss is another man's gain. On Thursday, Peter Quillin (31-0, 22KOs) announced that he was vacating the World Boxing Organization's middleweight title.  He was scheduled, at least on paper, to face mandatory challenger Matt Korobov (24-0, 14KOs) on November 8th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The next contender in line to face Korobov for the vacant title is #2 ranked Billy Joe Saunders (20-0, 11KOs), who is promoted by Frank Warren.

Warren tells BoxingScene.com that he's very interested in making the fight and would love to place it as the co-feature of his anticipated show on November 22nd at the ExCel Arena in London. The show will be headlined by a heavyweight rematch between Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury. Warren is going to call Korobov's promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank, to begin negotiations.

"We're very, very interested in the fight...obviously. I haven't spoken to anybody yet, but we've got a show in November here and we can do it here. We want to do it over here. It would be a great fight to put on the same card [as Chisora-Fury II]," Warren told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=Scott-Weiland;14915987]Or they could be the next Quillin and face nobody of note in two years.if Saunders wins a title do not expect a unification whilst promoted by Warren.[/QUOTE] I see them building up a Eubank Jnr fight... which wouldn't happen…

[QUOTE=kafkod;14915442]With GGG on a mission to unify the middleweight division, and Cotto on the run, whoever holds the WBO belt will be in pole position for a very lucrative beat-down.[/QUOTE] Or they could be the next Quillin and face nobody…

[QUOTE=Mick Higgs;14915423]I knew this was going to happen! FW & the WBO go hand in glove. Poor BJS will never win a Lonsdale belt out-right now thanks to old fishface. The WBO title is a farce & means Jack S**t![/QUOTE]…

I knew this was going to happen! FW & the WBO go hand in glove. Poor BJS will never win a Lonsdale belt out-right now thanks to old fishface. The WBO title is a farce & means Jack S**t!
