WBO super middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders believes Mexican superstar Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez has already reached his peak.
Saunders is slated to defend his world title against Canelo in the coming months.
The bout was scheduled to take place on May 2nd in Las Vegas, but the event is likely going to be postponed to a later date due to the ongoing pandemic with the coronavirus.
There is a chance, however, that Saunders will get passed over - as Canelo has already reached a deal to face Gennadiy Golovkin for a third time on September 12th.
If the bout with Saunders is delayed beyond June, then it's very possible that Canelo bypass Saunders and head directly to the trilogy fight with Golovkin.
Saunders is very confident that his best form is more than enough to beat Canelo.
"I rate him as the best pound-for-pound at the moment. For me to defeat him, it's just not about money, don't get me wrong, we're all in it for the money, but for me, if they were to say, 'you're definitely going to win, but you're going to go home and you're not having a penny, I'd say 'yes, let's do that,'" Saunders said on Instragram Live.
"For me it's all about winning. I really do rate him, I think that he's a brilliant fighter, he's complete, but the thing is - I believe that we've seen the best of him. We haven't seen the best of me yet. I have seen the absolute best of him, the Golovkin fight twice, the Danny Jacobs fight, he's not going to get any better than that.
"I believe on my night, as long as everything is bang on right for me, I believe I've got the beating of Canelo Alvarez, but he's a brilliant champion. You have to beat the best to be the best."
