Saunders To Sanchez: Golovkin is My Backup Plan, I'm Not Yours!

Billy Joe Saunders has insisted that despite his eagerness to unify with Gennady Golovkin, he will not be treated as a back-up plan. 
 
On May 5th, Canelo Alvarez and Golovkin are scheduled to face each other in a rematch of their first meeting that ended in a controversial draw.
 
Canelo recently tested positive for the banned drug clenbuterol in drug tests conducted by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA).

If the highly-anticipated rematch does not go ahead, Golovkin’s trainer Abel Sanchez has hinted that Golovkin would “go a different way” and target a fight with undefeated WBO Champion Saunders.
 
Despite Sanchez claiming that Saunders would be “chomping at the bit” to face Golovkin as a ‘plan B’, the Hatfield man has reiterated that if the Middleweight foes meet in the ring, it will be on his terms.
 
“First of all me and Frank signed a contract to fight Golovkin before and they were the ones that pulled out, not me,” said Saunders.  “I’m no back-up plan or plan B to anyone, I’m a World Champion and I believe that I’m the best in the division.
 
“If anything, Golovkin is my back-up plan. He is only saying this now because he is worried about getting beat by Canelo. He thinks that if he loses he’s going to fight again straight away for my belt.
 
“If he gets beat and comes to me without his belts then obviously I’m the A side and he’s the B side. If he comes to me with his belts then most definitely I’ll look forward to fighting him but he’s got Canelo to worry about first.
 
“Him and his trainer can talk as much crap as they want but when it comes down to it I’m ready to do the walking as well as the talking – and I’ve proved that before. For now all of my focus is on beating Martin Murray on Saturday 23rd June.”
 
Tickets for Saunders v Murray priced from £40 (Tier) to £300 (Hospitality) are available to purchase via www.axs.com.

[QUOTE=factsarenice;18599026]Problem is that it's too much attitude and nothing more than a fringe belt. Saunders is not a draw, [B]and the way he fought Lemieux certainly didn't win any fans.[/B] Considering Saunders style and lack of appeal I question why…
