    I know that there's hardly any guarantee this one will happen, but the WBO "ordered" it for their 160 belt, so it might.
    A lot of different opions for this one as well, from "Billy Joe will 'school' the limited come forward plodder" to "Lemmy knocks this kid silly inside a couple of rounds".

    What do you guys think, and where do you think it's gonna take place? The US? UK? Canada?

    Billy Joe will school Lemmy for the first 8 rounds, Lemmy drops Billy Joe and sweeps the last 4, and loses by SD.


    In the UK.

    I expect the fight has a near zero chance of happening.

    If it did as long as BJS I'd at his best I'd fancy him to snatch a points win.

    I'm going to say that when Billy Joe Is well trained and conditioned like he was against Eubank Jr, Lee, and Monroe Jr he can hang with the best in his division based entirely on his boxing skill level. He does get a little sloppy and lethargic from time to time, especially in the later rounds though. I can see him staying on point and maintaining focus for a full 12 rounds and winning a points decision. That a Lemieux win I'd have to really start taking his resume quite a bit more seriously as it would be a very solid one.

    Not sure yet Saunders suprised me lately. I thought Monroe Jr would beat him.

    Saunders UD or Lemieux KO

    A suburb champions vs a hoser with a bad hair cut.

    King Saunders and when he wins he will enter everyone's top ten P4P

    Lemieux will knock out Saunders and then he'll knock out his little ahole of a son too.

    Saunders would be rightly favored. Lemiuex can still pile drive him

    BJS can make the Mule run out of gas as BJS is a slippery SOB but in the end I think around the 10th David can hit a score a KO

    Saunders sits hard on his butt. Lemieux by a late KO!

    Saunders is criminally underrated. He's his own worst enemy though as he is not always fully committed.
    He would box lemmys head off

    I have Lemieux by KO. Even if Saunders would have success defensively, everything Lemmy throws will hurt and I can´t see Saunders last 12 rds of action. Good slash of styles and entertaining fight. Must see!

    Billy Joe will have to be very focused for this one. Focused and well conditioned he could make Lemieux look a level below as hes cute as ****. Lemieux's hooks inside could drop anyone though, the mans brutal with them. Imo its not out the question Lemieux dropping and stopping Saunders but safe bet on skills is BJS !

    I think Saunder would be completely committed to the preparation for this fight because Lemieux is truly elite, and if he cuts corners or is complacent he could get tagged.

    I think Saunders wins a wide UD- just because he is far too clever and evasive and will pick Lemieux off.
