WBO World Champion Billy Joe Saunders (25-0, 12 KOs) has reiterated his desire to face Gennady Golovkin in a middleweight unification.
Saunders outpointed Willie Monroe Jr. on Saturday night at Copper Box in London, while Triple G retained his WBC, IBF, IBO and WBA 'Super' belts after a draw against Canelo Alvarez at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
On Monday morning, Saunders tweeted: "Weekend is out the way, back to good food today, back in camp next week. Golovkin, well done champ for Saturday. Are you ready? Because I am. All the belts!"
After the fight, Saunders admitted there was some ring rust to get rid of after just one fight since winning the belt in December 2015. This was also his first outing under new trainer Dominic Ingle, who is currently best known for his work with former welterweight champion Kell Brook.
At the T-Mobile Arena, Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) and Canelo (49-1-2, 34 KOs) put on a great show over twelve captivating rounds. Each judge had a different view, so the bout ended in a draw and the belts went home with the Kazakh. There were scores of a controversial 118-110 in favor of Canelo, 115-113 in favor of Golovkin and 114-114 for the draw.
Nobody has held all four major Middleweight belts since Jermain Taylor defeated Bernard Hopkins in their meeting in 2005, so a unification between Saunders and Golovkin would be a huge event.
Saunders' promoter Frank Warren is keen on making the fight.
"He [Saunders] will fight in December. We'll have him out again in December, hopefully it's Golovkin," he told iFL.
