    Agreed ! It’s disgusting that Saunders is demanding a bigger ring than he’s fought in before , FAIR FIGHTS !!!!

    "I've planned this out in my head and I've been dreaming about this since I was a little boy fighting in my front room," said Saunders.

    "I've had dreams of this day happening since I was about five or six years old… I've got all the way here.

    "This will be the biggest upset in boxing history, I believe. Certainly in the last 20 years. I believe this is meant to be.

    "To win this means absolutely everything to me. More than money, more than fame, more than everything. I want to win this so badly it's a joke."*


    *Unless the ring's a bit too small.

    Why does he keep complaining? He's been the home fighter in all his fights bar against Lemieux and received special treatment, and now he is on the other end of it.

    Saunders should never have been given this fight (and it's payday) after his McGuigan daughter comments BUT I'm glad he's speaking out and showing a bit of fire here. Is it too much to hope that BJS is actually showing up with intentions of winning the fight unlike some of Canelo's opponents ??

    Agree. As much as we all love it, professional championship boxing is a racket. Only those who are party to the BJS-Canelo contract will know for sure what's been agreed and what hasn't, and whether this is all for show.

    There is no way they can be walking away over 2 foot difference in a ring size

    If it is true and they walk away, I wonder who the stand in is?

    So the normal ring size is 20ft or 22ft? How have they not got an agreement on the ring size like. With Tyson Wlad at this they discovered the canvas was too foamy. This is a joke and hopefully just antics to hype the fight and get BJS up for it more.

    Lol at people comparing this to the whole Tyson Wlad thing. Saunders has never fought in a ring bigger than 20 foot? They’ve got a 20 foot ring. What’s the issue?

    They're not throwing away a career high payday over this, no chance. It's mind games.
