    BJS only has himself to blame.

    Failed a drugs test, ducked Andrade to fight an easy opponent for a belt, takes video of the vulnerable and laughs at them, pulls out of fights all the time. How can you blame people for not seeing the point of fighting him?

    He’s not serious and has proved it time and time again.

    I heard warren say they tried to make the bjs vs young CHRIS rematch but English is still smarting about some payout he was forced to give Warren (when young CHRIS dropped out of fighting one of warrens guys ages ago Tom someone)

    So when warren contacts English he says pay me that money back and we’ll negotiate the Saunders rematch

    One sided version of the story I’m sure but made me chuckle can imagine English still plotting to get his money back from old frankie

    Lemieux is better than any Eubank win, mate imo. We’re not polar opposites on this, I think Saunders is a t** and has wasted a fair chunk of his career, but in terms of boxing skill he’s streets ahead. Fights are not won on paper or on boxing forums though, BJS has gotta put the work in and there’s no question Junior does that. However, he has to, he is dependent on his athleticism, desire and heart.

    He is but since then what’s he done? It’s been nearly two years. That’s what I keep harping on about. That win should’ve been the catalyst for a great career, instead he’s stagnated / if not went backwards.

    Jimmy Tibbs lost patience with him years ago for not being serious about his career. Has wasted his talent and potential happily sitting on the periphery of world level. Sorry but I don’t think he’s ever wanted to face the best and test himself. Not long ago he was talking of being retired by 30....

    He's stupid, that is the bottom line.

    So hard to be interested in this guy at the moment. I don't blame anyone of note for not wanting to fight him either, the chances of him pulling out are just too damn high.

    He'll fight one of the more random names on there and either look world class or absolutely labour to a decision like he did against Akavov. Brilliant boxer but a very numb career

    Bang on - after that video, thought he might take a leaf out of his pal Fury’s book and enter a period of self reflection - maybe a public apology to that girl he abused. But I’ve not witnessed an ounce of remorse - might have at least apologised after his last fight - but instead he’s tried to brush it under the carpet. Great skills in the ring, but out of the ring, he’s made himself extremely difficult to market.

    The usual rubbish about BJS on here. Amazing what hate does to people’s perception. Saunders latest performance was punch perfect bar being clipped above the ear by a super middleweight with legitimate power. He recovered intelligently, took no more damage and continued the excellent performance. What’s the problem? He now holds a belt at a second weight class. His resume is the most underrated in British boxing - Undefeated. How many active Brits can you name with a better resume? Ryder, Spike, Eubank, Monroe, Andy Lee, Lemieux. There ain’t many better current Brit resumes, that’s for sure. He’s in his prime and has many years left in the sport.

    Many years left, so what's that in fights, 2? 3?

    Inactivity is Saunders' toughest opponent.

    Eubank has called him out. Canelo is actively seeking an opponent. Andrade who he ducked is seeking an opponent. Theres no excuse.
