There was a weigh-in on Friday evening Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders before the gala organized by DAZN and Matchroom Boxing. Both gentlemen were within the £ 168 limit.
On Saturday night around 5:30 am – Saul Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders check into the ring. A duel will take place in Texas, which will choose the WBC, WBA and WBO champions. If the Mexican wins – he will keep The Ring belt.
Before the match, the Brit is very confident in his abilities and openly hits his rival when the media asks about their match. According to Billy, every Canelo rival he won did not have faith in his own abilities like he did, so they succumbed to pressure from Alvarez, as he talks about in an interview with DAZN.
I believe in myself, I am a complete fighter, I have mental strength. I’m not here to catch the rounds, I’m here to win. Saul had never fought a rival who had such immense determination. It will be a great match that I will win. I haven’t lost since 2008, I’m undefeated and that won’t change.
What’s more, Tyson Fury himself claims that his friend from the hall will be able to cope with the phenomenal ‘Canelo’.
You will see a boxing show by Bill, he will win by unanimous decision after 12 rounds. My buddy is in great shape, it will be a great fight.
As for Saul, he doesn’t say much in the media, other than that he will win all the superweight belts. The Mexican remains focused for the upcoming competition.
