Tyson Fury backs cut up, ripped Billy Joe Saunders to dominate Canelo
Tyson Fury sees his long-time friend and fellow traveler Billy Joe Saunders dominating pound-for-pound king Canelo Alvarez on May 8th.
The heavyweight king made no bones about it when predicting Saunders would take the Mexican superstars crown to unify the division.
Saunders has got himself into fantastic shape during a brutal training camp and looks shredded for the fight.
In front of a massive crowd in Texas, Saunders has the opportunity to follow only the great Floyd Mayweather in defeating one of boxing’s most feared champions of the modern era.
TYSON FURY BACKING
Fury has no doubt.
“Billy Joe Saunders is 100% mentally in the right place,” pointed out Fury. “He knows what he has to do, and he will do it.
“He will rise above and claim greatness. I was written off many times in the past and have always come through.
“We are cut from the same cloth. We are the same breed of animals,” Fury added.
Concluding by giving Canelo some respect, Tyson Fury stated he expects Saunders to do more than win.
“Canelo has fought them all but never a fighting Gypsy. We are a different breed of animal from anything he has come across before.
“Yes, domination with the help of God.”
