Saunders Slams Canelo: He's a Ginger P*ssy, I'll Fight Golovkin!

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (24-0, 12 KOs) has ripped apart Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KOs).

Last year, there was talk of the two colliding in the fall. Saunders was going to fight on the undercard to Canelo's bout with Liam Smith last September in Texas. Saunders and Canelo's promoter, Golden Boy Promotions, were unable to reach a deal on the opponent.

Saunders was still a prime candidate to fight Canelo in December, but that fell in the wind after Canelo suffered a bad hand injury that ruled out the possibility of fighting for the remainder of 2016.

Saunders is now in line to fight IBF, IBO, WBC, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) on June 10th in Kazakhstan.

But there are also ongoing discussions for Canelo to face Golovkin in September. Canelo would first have to beat Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. at a catch-weight of 164.5-pounds.

Canelo's promoters have expressed concern over Golovkin going forward with a fight in June, and they even made mention that a June fight could jeopardize the deal for a September pay-per-view clash with Canelo.

Saunders is angered that Golovkin is continuing to pursue Canelo. Last year Golovkin was the mandatory challenger to Canelo's WBC belt. The fight never happened when Canelo vacated his title and moved down to 154. Golovkin became the full WBC champion by default.

"I’ll tell you what Canelo is. He’s a little ginger p*ssy. A little ginger f*ggot, that's what he is," Saunders erupted to IFL TV.

"I don’t know why Golovkin is worried about him for, because he had a belt and gave it to him. He don’t want to fight Golovkin. He don’t want to fight nobody. Again, they want to fight people... they want to bring people down. They are bringing Chavez down to a stupid, stupid weight. He wouldn’t go to 160 to fight Golovkin. He won’t have me, yet he’ll have Chavez coming down."

"[Canelo] is nobody to worry about because he’s just trying to protect something - his legacy. The only legacy he’s got is getting beat off by Mayweather - nothing else. He might have tons and tons of money, good luck and fair play to him. I know how the sport is and he deserves it, but in my opinion, he’d never go down as a great - never, ever. I'm not saying that I'd go down as a great, but as a boxing fan he will never go down as a great in my book, ever."
