Saunders Jabs Canelo, Golovkin - They've Been Hiding Too Long

WBO super middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (28-0-1, 15 KOs) has sent a few verbal shots in the direction of Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and Gennadiy Golovkin.

Saunders will make his American debut on Saturday night, when he makes a voluntary defense of the belt against Esteban Coceres as part of the undercard the KSI-Logan Paul rematch at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

"I need to showcase some skills in America, no one really knows me here but you will do after Saturday night," said Saunders, per Sky Sports.

"No disrespect to my opponent, I'm here to put a showcase on to show how levels are made. I'm after Canelo, Golovkin, all the big names, they've been hiding too long. I'm a two-weight champion and I'm really hoping to put on good performance for the American crowd. I hope you enjoy your night, some good fights, some super talent on the show and a couple of YouTubers."

Canelo was in action this past weekend, when he knocked out Sergey Kovalev in the eleventh round to capture the WBO light heavyweight title. He also holds the WBA's "regular" title at super middleweight and the WBA's title at middleweight.

Canelo is expected to drop down to 168-pounds, and Saunders has been mentioned as a possible opponent.

Golovkin is still competing at 160-pounds and recently captured the IBF's world title with a close decision win over Sergiy Derevyanchenko last month in New York City.

Golovkin is likely going to return on a date in February with a mandatory defense of his title - and he then may pursue a big fight at 160 or 168.
