Saunders - "Eubank Sr. is a Complete D*ckhead, Utter Idiot"

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

BILLY JOE SAUNDERS wants to "smash up" Chris Eubank Jr if he beats Andy Lee.

The Hatfield-based traveller takes on WBO middleweight champion Lee at Manchester Arena on Saturday.

Saunders, 26, beat Eubank Jr on a split decision last year - an outcome the son of the former two-weight world champion believes was controversial.

But Saunders would happily settle their feud in the first defence of the WBO belt if he can take it from Lee.

Eubank Jr beat Gary 'Spike' O'Sullivan on Saturday to become mandatory challenger for the WBA title, but would still prefer to avenge the only defeat on his record.

Saunders said: "I'll fight anybody. Offer me the right money and I've got no problem about smashing him up again.

"Win this and I'll happily face him in my first defence for the right money. I'm a man of my word, I'll stick to it, no problem.

"I've got no fears about facing him again. Looking at his performance on Saturday, put a blindfold on me and I'd outbox him.

"I was not impressed. Listen, Spike is a good level fighter, but Eubank's performance just didn't impress me at all."

Saunders still clearly hates his former foe and his father as he ranted about them at the final head-to-head press conference for his first world title clash.

He said: "His dad is a complete d***head and a complete and utter idiot. There are no other words for the man.

"He's living off his dad's name and his dad is living off what he did 25 years ago. But that's in the past.

"This is about the present and who's going to do what now and I think I'm the man to do it."

Saunders believes it is his destiny to become world champion after coming through the ranks steadily since turning professional after the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

He added: "I think I have chosen the right road. I've won the southern Area, British, Commonwealth, European and now world.

"I think it's all leading to this moment on Saturday night."

The more I listen to Saunders, the more I like him. The Eubank's are totally delusional.
