Hearn: “The higher the stakes, the better Saunders”


Eddie Hearn, promoter of the WBO middleweight champion (up to 76.2 kg), Briton Billy Joe Saunders (30-0-0, 14 KO), said that he has no doubts about the motivation of his ward ahead of the fight with the WBC / WBA champion and leader rating “pound-for-pound”, Mexican Saul Alvarez (55-1-2, 37 KO).

“We expect to have around a hundred thousand people at AT&T Stadium, and this atmosphere will spur Billy. He is not one of those fighters who are in awe of the opponent. He has a reactive personality, and if he feels threatened, then you will have a hard time.

The higher the pressure, the better Saunders performs. He understands that this is a golden chance for him. And I want him to win one of the greatest victories in British boxing history, ”Hearn said.
