A huge UK middleweight clash between undefeated fighters Billy Joe Saunders and Chris Eubank Jr is all set for November 29 on the undercard of Dereck Chisora’s rematch with Tyson Fury.
According to 25 year-old Saunders, the fight has finally been agreed despite doubts being raised following Eubank’s failure to meet a deadline set by promoter Frank Warren last week.
Speaking to his local newspaper, the Welwyn Hatfield Times, Saunders said: “I’ve been told by Frank that he has eventually signed the fight and now I’m looking forward to it and getting in there and smashing him up.”
“It’s what all the fans wanted, and financially it makes perfect sense.
“It means once I get this out of the way, I will be 100 per cent ready for a world title shot, which is already sorted,” he added.
