Frank Warren Wants Saunders vs. Canelo or GGG, Loma-Flanagan

Hall-of-Fame promoter Frank Warren has revealed the three fights he'd love to make this year, as he answered a number of fan questions on this week's BoxNation Podcast.

Asked which dream dust-ups he'd like to promote in 2018, he referenced a handful of brilliant match-ups including the likes of Billy Joe Saunders, Tyson Fury and Vasyl Lomachenko.

"I'd like to make Billy Joe Saunders against [Gennady] Golovkin or Canelo [Alvarez]. I'd like to make Tyson Fury against AJ, it would be a great fight," Warren said to Steve Lillis.


Saunders is hoping to secure a Middleweight unification later this year, while Tyson Fury is planning a comeback to try and reclaim the Heavyweight throne.

Finally, Warren then explained his third choice: "I'd like to see Terry Flanagan in a really big fight. There's numerous fights out there. I'd like to see him in with a big one."

Flanagan can become a two-weight World Champion on April 14th, should he defeat American Super-Lightweight Maurice Hooker in London, and has signalled his desire to take on the top operators in his weight class.

"He wants to fight Lomachenko, who I think is the best fighter out there! He genuinely wants to fight them. [Winning the vacant WBO belt] makes it easier to make, but it's a bloody tough fight."

"Then we've got the winner of Josh Warrington and [Lee] Selby against Carl [Frampton]. They are good fights there that we're doing our best to make," he added.

Also on episode 15 of the BoxNation Podcast, Mikey Garcia and Regis Prograis' weekend wins are reviewed, there's a world exclusive clip from the Lee Selby v Josh Warrington Face Off and Steve Lillis has his say on fighters missing weight.

During a Canelo vs Golovkin press conference BJS asked a question and once he realized neither fighter could understand him he got really disrespectful. He mercilessly attacked Canelo, it was like watching an entitled 15 year old shout profanities at…

BJS is basically cherry picking Golovkin's leftovers. But given his trashy attitude to Canelo there is zero chance of that fight happening.

Hopefully fish eyes puts his hand in his pocket to make some of these fights happen! Flanagan had long spoke of unifications but unless I'm wrong, him and his team just seem to talk through the media instead of making…
