Billy Joe Saunders is the heavy favourite and rightfully so. Wish Fletcher well but Billy Joe is a massive Middleweight and has very heavy hands compared to Fletcher who has solid power at best. Billy Joe wide decision or 2nd half stoppage.

Fletcher and saunders are both solid fighters
Meeting one another will be the biggest test
for both at this stage of there careers.
Having said that fletcher handles left handers
brilliiantly and a quality boxer like saunders
will bring out the best in fletcher. for my mind
fletcher wide decision

Fair to say anyway Kegsy, that Fletch has well and truly earned his way out of your padded record list. Though there are always worthy contenders to take his place.

No doubt at all mate.

Fletcher has significantly stepped up his opposition in 2012 & deserves props for doing so.
1 of the few from my list to do so.

Now taking Billy Joe Saunders is a massive test & if Fletcher does cause the upset in England, he will get good world ratings probably in at least 2 sanctioning bodies.

How is it a massive upset, Fletcher is a high quality fighter. Commonwealth games gold medalists etc.

Suanders is good but it's a 50/50.

Frank W arren just like Top Rank/Bob Arum in the US is the best in the business when it comes to bringing talent through & making boxers stars from a prospect to a contender and then world champion with many being undefeated in this process throughout the years.

Saunders has the major boxing contract with Frank W arren, is the Commonwealth Champion, has fought the better opposition as a pro & is fighting at home in UK. Fletcher is the big underdog in this matchup & lacks the punching power also which will make it an even tougher proposition relying on a decision on the road.

Saunders has one thing in his favour and thats fighting in his own back yard. saunders edge in power against fletchers far better ring craft make for a great fight. Similar records against similar opposition. Fletch will prove to sharp

Top fight.

Both former olympians. Saunders looks a bit stronger but jarrod has been impressive and his movement might mess with the pommys rhythm.
