Default de gale vs saunders 168

fish eyes said he thinks billy joe should move up to super middle & think he be a bigger force at that weight, so who do you think would win billy joe or james?

DeGale points. BJS is not a super middle and fish eyes is wrong.

Haven't voted because I'm honestly not sure.

Degale is the natural SMW and, when he puts his mind to it, is a decent/good fighter with potential BUT if he turns up against BJS as he did in his last but one fight (the French/North African challenger for the EBU title) then he will lose.

BJS wouldn't stop him regardless of what Degale turns up but is more than capable of getting a convincing points win against a can't be arsed/lazy one.

Saunders looks fleshy at 160, I think DeGale would beat him easily.

DeGale fairly easily. Saunders should definitely not move up, would be a terrible decision.

Fish Eyes truly is losing his marbles if he really said that.

BJS has talent and potential IMO but if he went up to SM now he'd get killed. He's too young and fleshy, maybe when he's a bit older and can carry weight better but right now when everything is going well for him at 160lbs? It would be career suicide.

DeGale would beat him easy, Groves would stop him.

Chunky, no doubt about it.

Cod eyes is a complete idiot, trying to get his best prospect beat, any idiot can see that he should be absolutely nowhere near 168.

They'd have definitely sparred together at some point you'd think given their olympic history and the fact that they were both fighting for the same promoter for a while. Perhaps FW has a reason to believe BJS could trouble Degale?

Saunders shouldnt be anywhere near Degale. The weight is all wrong for him plus he hasnt developed enough as a fighter yet, ceertainly doesnt have the power at the moment to trouble Degale.

Also, what does Degale gain if he fought Sounders and won anyway? He himself needs tests and is still developing.

Stupid idea

Saunders at Middleweight is fleshy and should be at light middleweight, moving up to super middleweight would be career suicide, very bad idea.

Saunders moving to 168 is suicide.

Saunders is not a 168er. If he struggles to get to 160 it is out of laziness, IMO, as opposed to being too big for the weight.

Now, DeGale is a massive 168. Possibly a stoppage late.
