Saunders: I Was Offered 1.5 Million For Golovkin, Not 4 Million

Billy Joe Saunders has played down reports he received a whopping $4m career high pay day offer to tangle with the feared Kazakh KO King Gennady Golovkin, who holds the IBO/WBA/IBF world titles.

“I’ll go to America but these Americans have got to stop offering me s*** money to fight, people keep saying I got offered $4m to fight him. If I got $4m to fight Golovkin, I would be fighting him!” explained Saunders.

The WBO World Middleweight Champion was speaking to Kugan Cassius yesterday and revealed: “They offered me $1.5m for what? To go in someone’s back yard. Alright Lemieux done it… Look where he is now… No belt and no ranking!”

Before potential summer showdowns against the likes of Golovkin, Saunders has his first defence against ‘Mad’ Max Bursak on April 30 to contend with.

“I want to be rewarded. I fought Andy Lee and took my chance. If you beat GGG by 2/3 rounds you’ll get robbed. Let him come here… I’ve got to have one thing going by way, the only thing I want is home advantage,” said the slick southpaw.

Oh dear, enough childish posturing, it is very dull. Billy Joe Saunders...? Is he good enough to beat a genuine champion at this time? I don't think he could beat Eubanks junior anymore, I think Eubanks junior would start faster…

[QUOTE=aboutfkntime;16582513]Well, you have stated on numerous occasions that you highly doubt Ward/Kovalev will ever happen, and when you made those comments you were insinuating that Ward would avoid Kovalev. You know that is true, and you know that I can…
