Former champion in two weight categories, Briton David Haye gave a forecast for the upcoming unification fight in the second middle weight (up to 76.2 kg) between compatriot Billy Joe Saunders and the leader of the pound-for-pound rating, Mexican Saul Alvarez.
“I think the fact that Saunders is left-handed will give Canelo problems. Obviously, he looks best when the guys match his style and stand in front of him. Believe me, it’s not easy to hit a left-handed person who fires back at a long distance.
Again, Saunders can create problems, but I don’t think he will win. Canelo is insanely good, and that reminds me of Roy Jones. You just don’t know how to beat him. What are you going to do? This guy always finds a way out. The only thing I hope for is that the fight will turn out to be interesting, but I will not undertake to bet against Canelo, ”said Haye.
