    Do we think Ben can get Saunders to make 160lbs the way he did while he was using Ingles supplements?

    Ben has Tyson Fury in great shape at the moment, but then again Tyson is a heavyweight who doesnt have to make weight so its not as difficult a task.

    I think he'll really struggle, especially if he's not fighting at least twice a year at that weight, 7 fights in the last 5 years at Middleweight. Personally I think he's done, I hope so, he doesn't deserve any paydays.

    He'll make middleweight with no issues. Only issue he ever had with weight was ill discipline. Middleweight is where Davison wants him to be.

    If it’s a massive fight with plenty of notice and BJS has the brains , then he’ll get there comfortably and give his true showing. I hope BJS means everything he said today and I hope Hearn can actually deliver on his part, it could be a truly great partnership for British boxing.

    They are the biggest fights out there for any British fighter if AJ loses to Ruiz again.

    Agreed, he’s not even a big middle weight is he?

    No. There's literally nothing to see here. Any time he's been in a serious 160 fight he's made the weight comfortably and his trainer has recently suggested that's where he wants him to be.

    I'm not so sure, he hasn't fought at Middleweight in nearly 2 years and since then he's been busted for using a banned substance that aided him. In that time he's fought once at Super Middleweight and once at what was technically Cruisrweight, 178lbs. It's just a total f**k up that needs to be addressed immediately and I guess that is what Hearn is trying and hoping to do. Can Saunders fight at least twice a year against genuinely top level opposition?

    Billy Joe isn't a SMW. He's a good size MW and will continue to make it for as long as he stays off the Dominos.

    He needs to recognise that between now and the end of his career as a boxer, there can't be any more blowouts. He needs to live the life, in and outside the gym.

    If he can't, Davidson needs to cut him loose before his own reputation is also compromised.

    The problem is, he'll pick up good easy(ish) money fighting Smith, Brook, Eubank etc(this is better for Hearn all the money stays internally), rather than the likes of GGG, Brook etc

    Bit confused what you are saying about Brook here
    He should make weight fine for a few years hes just a man child with poor discipline.
    Smith is 50/50, He would batter Brook but they are pals so that wont happen. The Eunbank fight is still there and still a decent fight depending on what Eubank does next and he gives GGG fits

    BJS can be as good as he wants. Another Kell Brook with one decent win in his career, or he can get mentioned as the best in the world if he takes on GGG, Alvarez clocks ticking...

    . He can make middleweight easily when motivated. Nothing to do with "supplements" and everything to do with inactivity and lack of motivation.

    Saunders mentioned in an interview yesterday that he had been up training with Ingle. I wouldnt be surprised if he starts working up in sheffield on a full time basis again since Ben Davidson is with Tyson.

    The problem is getting 2 top class opponents in the ring with BJS.

    He makes middleweight easily, needs something to motivate him, and has the talent to beat anyone in his weight class
