Billy Joe Saunders Says He Could Very Well Retire By Age 30

WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders is currently at the highest point of his undefeated career.

Earlier this month, Saunders secured the biggest victory of his pro run when he traveled to Canada to win a dominating twelve round unanimous decision over former IBF king David Lemieux.

The win has placed Saunders in line for some of the biggest fights at the weight - against opponents like Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez and IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

Saunders, 28-years-old, now admits that he could very well be done with the sport by age 30

"I've always said when I'm 30 I'll be done," Saunders said. "I've got children, I've been very sensible with my money — put it into property — and I've always said that when I'm 30 I'll be done... I've done everything in boxing now.

However, he also states that a huge money offer would persuade him to continue a little longer.

"Don't get me wrong," Saunders counters. "If I'm 30 and the unified champion and there's a fight there worth £10million, I'm going to say: 'All right, let's do it'

"I've been very, very lucky, I've probably earned more through property than I have through boxing. Where I come from, being a young kid, 11 years old, I've always had to buy and sell something. Even when I got older, 16, 17, I was buying and selling cars, little cars, but it was what I could afford...

"There's a hell of a lot of money to be made in property. I rent them out, I have flipped them, I've got lucky with planning permission on some, building on some. I've fallen lucky a couple of times."

Saunders also plans to take it very easy with the New Year's celebrations.

"I never go anywhere (on New Year's Eve). You never hear of me in nightclubs, I'm not a drinker, I have never touched drugs. I'll have the odd drink but if I ever do go out to a nightclub I'm back for half 12," Saunders said.

"I just love food, I really do... my fight was always the scales, I used to think my talent would get me through the rest. My talent won me the world title."
