Briton Amir Khan is confident that his compatriot WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders will not be able to oppose the leader of the pound-for-pound rating, Mexican Saul Alvarez, and will be knocked out in the sixth round during their fight.
“Alvarez has to be careful. Anyone who watches him fights outside the ring comes to the conclusion that he is slow, but he is not. It’s just that Saul is very good at timing. He makes you think he is slow. Trust me, you are making a huge mistake by underestimating Alvarez.
I consider myself a fast boxer and during our fight I was able to catch Saul several times, but still he is great in defense and he has a strong chin, and in response he delivers really strong punches. He demonstrated the power of his punch by winning the light heavyweight title.
Billy Joe has the style and skills that can cause problems for Alvars, but this will not last long, perhaps for several rounds, and then, unfortunately, Saul will knock him out. I think it will happen in the sixth round, ”Khan shared his opinion.
Recall that the fight between Saul Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders will take place on May 8th at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, USA.
