Saunders vs. Golovkin is The Preferred Fight, Says Warren

By Frank Warren

ANOTHER OF THE question marks to emerge from the weekend’s events in Las Vegas is how the dubious draw between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez affects our own Billy Joe Saunders.

The bottom line is that Bill will be fighting in December, one way or another. I want him to be fighting regardless, preferably against Golovkin and hopefully we can get that on.

We will see over the next week whether that can be the case or not. If it isn’t, Bill will carry on fighting and we will move on. He has got the belt, he has got his own career and one of them will end up fighting Bill soon enough, no doubt about that.


Most importantly, Bill will be back up in Sheffield next week to resume training for his December date.

For this fight just gone he trained to make the weight because he came in so heavy. For his next one, after his week off, he gets back in and trains to fight.

I WOULD LIKE to take this opportunity to wish our man Hughie Fury every success in his shot at the WBO world heavyweight title against Joseph Parker on Saturday.

It won’t be an easy job because Parker is from tough stock and, like Hughie, he remains a young fighter on the up.

Home advantage will hopefully prove the key for Hughie because if he is going to win a world title at such a young age, this is the time to do it.

If he gets beat, it is not the end of the world, but hopefully they will be raising his hand at the end.

It is his big opportunity and we worked very hard to get him into this position. He did the business in the ring, while I did it for him to get this opportunity. Now I want him to capitalise on it.

Good luck Hughie.

BJS just beat Monroe handily while Grovelkin struggled with Canelo. Saunders is ready to do a job on Gennad in December. He's undefeated and confident. His record is perfect and unblemished, unlike Grolovkin. Saunders will box his ears off. Its…

If GGG & Saunders fight in December I'll blow my load! Saunders wins this one, GGG just lost a step since turning 35, let's go!

Warren has obviously had enough of BJS's sh^t lol. I'd be calling up Cotto for that Dec. 2 date if I was them. Thats a winable fight for BJS. I was hyping BJS at one point, but he's wasted the…
