Hall: Saunders Will Be in For The Shock of His Life!

Matthew Hall has warned British and Commonwealth middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders not to underestimate him ahead of their fight at York Hall on Thursday March 21.

The Manchester fighter, a former Commonwealth champion at light-middleweight, is determined to create a huge upset against the undefeated Hatfield boxer.

“If he’s expecting an easy night and thinks he can just turn up and beat me, he’s in for the shock of his life,” said Hall, 28.

“People are writing me off because I’ve had a few bad nights, but don’t be shocked when I beat him - I’ll be laying it all on the line against Saunders.

“He’s a good fighter, he’s got good fast hands and movement, but he couldn’t put away Bradley Pryce who I stopped in two rounds.

"I’ll be the stronger man on the night for sure... he hasn’t been hit clean yet in the pros and his chin hasn’t been tested. We don’t know if he can fight.

"I’ve seen a few things in his last fight against Nick Blackwell that I believe I can exploit."

Hall is 25-6, with 16 knock-outs, while 23-year-old Saunders has 10 KOs in his 16 fights to date.
