    The discrimination card being played, three travellers have been world champions in recent years Lee,,Saunders, and Fury,another Tyson's brother is commanding purses way above his abilities , where is the discrimination there?

    I know a few people that are acquainted with Saunders,they all say he is a liberty taking *****.

    Not interested. If he does come back he can clean up some domestics. He really dropped the ball not long after the Fletcher fight, before Eubank. His overall style needs constant gym actively and he didn’t maintain that, and therefore didn’t improve it. Id encourage him to stay away from the sport, as his feet will slow, and his lack of defense will start to show. I’d say “just enjoy your spoils”, but he may have already spent them, so may need to reappear.

    I wouldn't believe all the hype, neither can stand each other but I've heard from the horses mouth that BJS would fight CEJ again if the money was right. I imagine he'd be looking for the type of money he got for the Canelo fight to do it though, which I think young Edward could deliver if CEJ beats Benn.

    £5 million+ for Saunders to box rubbish Jnr in a rematch that no body cares about ten years later? No wonder that platform are haemorrhaging money.

    Class from Hearn. Presuming Eubank Jr wins, they can then offer him a chance to avenge his defeat to Billy Joe Saunders. That will be another big PPV fight in the UK for DAZN.

    Stick Joshua v Dave Allen on as the 3rd last fight and it be described as a stacked card.

    Nice to see Edward has moved the card from December 23rd.

    As in, it’s a good business move from Hearn. Having Saunders on the undercard will build up a fight between him and Eubank once Eubank beats Benn.

    Lol I wouldn't be surprised if Saunders loses his first comeback fight.

    As much as I've always thought BJS was a talent, he has never really drawn crowds

    He is gonna have to do a hell of a lot in and out of the ring to sell this one

    Never really? Let’s be honest, it’s never. I’m surprised MR are working with him, but then again their outfit is such an irrelevant shambles these days they must be desperate. Even Warren won’t touch him.

    Yup, they clearly want to chuck him in with Eubank again despite them last fighting 9 years ago now, and Saunders has obviously blown all his money and is broke, so he'll do anything for a payday.

    He's been out of the ring for almost 3 years now and never looked after himself in his prime so I dread to think how bad his stamina will be now which was what his fighting style revolved around (and let him down in fights), and also, where is he gonna fight at? He'll probably be at HW lol.

    That big Canelo payday probably long gone.
