Look: Saunders reveals extent of cut that delayed Lee clash
Billy Joe Saunders has released the first picture of the cut he received in training and that subsequently delayed his world title dream further.
The southpaw was originally due to challenge for the WBO middleweight title against Andy Lee on September 19 until illness to the champion forced the fight to be switched to Manchester on October 10.
Saunders himself then suffered a gash during preparations and promoter Frank Warren is hoping to reschedule in the near future.
Dates in November and December are currently under review, whilst the Manchester show will still go ahead as planned with Terry Flanagan and Liam Smith in world title fights.
