Saunders in SPECTACULAR SHAPE for Andrade, ‘2 Guns’ added to bill
Billy Joe Saunders looks a picture of health and commitment ahead of his latest title defense on October 20.
The WBO middleweight champion finds out this week whether a doping ban will be forthcoming.
Saunders has been training in the United States ahead on his mandatory fight with Demetrius Andrade. Saunders posted a picture of his physique as fight week approaches.
The 29 year-old put his undefeated 26-0 record on the line against Andrade, who himself holds a perfect 25-0 C.V.
With no news yet on the UK broadcast, Saunders v Andrade takes place at the TD Garden in Boston.
In a recent move, former Contender star Walter Wright has been added to the bill following his shock win over Mark DeLuca.
The pair will contest a rematch after 37 year-old Wright stunned DeLuca in June.
Wright took DeLuca’s ‘0’ following a successful comeback from a five-year absence. ‘2 Guns’ is rewarded with a slot on a huge show.
Others on the bill for October 20th include Irish favorite Katie Taylor. The biggest star in women’s boxing and the WBA and IBF World Lightweight Champ competes in a showdown with Brooklyn-based Cindy Serrano.
‘Checkmate’ is the Brooklyn-based WBO Featherweight Champ. Serrano is also one of the most exciting combat sports stars to come out of Puerto Rico.
Serrano hasn’t lost a fight since 2012 and is gunning for two-weight World glory.
Also on the bill is a showdown between American boxer and IBF Super-Featherweight title holder Tevin Farmer and Irish boxer James Tennyson.
Farmer landed the title with a landslide points win in Billy Dib’s Australian backyard in August. He gained redemption in the process after missing out on the crown in a controversial split decision loss against Kenichi Ogawa in Las Vegas in December. Tennyson is the reigning European and Commonwealth champion.
