British double-weight champion Billy Joe Saunders continues to defend his rights ahead of the fight with the leader of the pound-for-pound rating, Mexican Saul Alvarez.
This time, Saunders, like his fellow Tyson Fury in 2015, criticized the size of the ring in which the meeting will take place.
“There are several points that do not suit us, and we must manage to solve them before the fight. Ring size. Initially Matchroom wanted us to box in the 18-foot ring at all, but then we moved on to the 20-foot version. However, it was originally intended to be 24 feet tall.
We now converge on 22 feet. MTK Global [менеджеры Сондерса] in action, and they keep an eye on everything. I hope we can come to an agreement. Matchroom wanted an 18-foot ring! This is an “amateur” ring! So they will deprive Billy Joe of the advantage, ”said the fighter’s father, Tom Saunders.
