Default How superb is Billy Joe Saunders?

Hey too you all, I follow Billy Joe's results for a year and a half and he seems stepping up in time. This guy seems to be a no nonses fighter for as far as I can see, and i readed some articles about him but perhaps you can tell me some more about him? Can he become a top 10 fighter or will he end on Bittish/European level?

He has all of the tools to make it to the top the only real issue is the power, his stamina has definately improved, hopefully the power will improve in time too, the future is definately bright though

Check out his next fight with John Ryder, also a very good, unbeaten, strong fighter, that fight should tell us a lot about both guys

I have high hopes for him and John Ryder in what should be a cracking bout. Regardless of who wins they are both young enough to come again. BJS now has a ranking with the WBO which sets him in good standing.

He wants to win the British championship outright he has said so he will defiantly stay at British level if he beats John Ryder for one more fight. We are blessed with a lot of younger prospects so for the british title in his next fight I want put him in with Eeamon O'Kane, Prince Aaron, Craig McEwan.

Adam Etches would be another cracking fight for BJS for British, IBF Youth and WBO Intercontinental which would rank him in both.

He defiantly has a lot of options and it seems that Frank is confident with him now throwing him in two good fights. Max Bursak for European is another option.

Hes class, but hand injuries from the past will probably hamper him at top level. Skill wise, hes not far off the top guys.

Prince Aaron is a fight I wanna see, but I'm not 100% he beats Ryder who is also quality.

Very good boxer. I question if he will make the World level though. Power and conditioning an issue.

no one denies he has skills but his level of competition hasn't been all that.
he has been hurt a few times in his fights, against nick blackwell the fight was stopped 20 seconds before the fight was over, saunders was unraveling against the pressure blackwell was putting him under. I don't think he'll make it to world level as his fans claims. It will be interesting to see how he deals with someone who brings power and pressure.

Really???

I like Aaron, but BJS would leather him.

As for Saunders, we'll get a good gauge on just how good he is once he's in with Ryder. So far so good though.
