Frank Warren Sees Big Things For Bradley Saunders

By Shaun Brown

Bradley Saunders might have only had ten fights but his promoter Frank Warren thinks that the 28 year old will go close to emulating stable mate Paul Butler’s record English boxing feat of winning a world title in just 16 professional contests.

So far, eight of Saunders’ opponents have either been stopped, knocked out or had to retire such is the Sedgfield’s natural and ruthless punching power. Last time out, former European title challenger Ville Piispanen was supposed to provide the sternest test yet for the crowd pleasing Saunders. But in the first round, an effortless and crippling body shot ended the Finn’s fight before it had even started.

“I rate Bradley Saunders, I think he’s an exceptional talent that’s matured both physically and mentally. He knows what he wants and he’s a handful for anybody,” Warren told BoxingScene.com recently.

Saunders had been due to make his third appearance of the year on the Tyson Fury-Alexander Ustinov mammoth undercard this Sat night in Manchester but an injury as well as advice from doctors forced him to pull out. The no.12 ranked WBO contender may have to bypass the British title scene such is his rapid progress and Warren believes that his star prospect won’t be too far off Butler’s achievement.

“I’m not saying he’ll do it in 16 fights but provided he keeps winning he won’t be far off it. You’d hate to say that in a year’s time he’s not going to be in the top three of at least one of the governing body ratings.”
