Billy joe saunders claims he wasted time waiting for a fight with Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez, after learning of the lawsuit that the Mexican filed against DAZN, and its promoter Golden boy.
“I have no opinion, or anything to say (about the lawsuit),” he said. Saunders in interview for IFL TV. “I have waited for it (at Canelo). We had a fight planned and I was promised the fight several times, but it never happened. I think at Canelo I already put it under the mat. If it happens, it happens ”.
In fact, Billy joe Saunders says he wasted time waiting for the Canelo.
“Callum smith and I have been waiting for that time of fight, because it is a big fight, a fight towards stardom, “he explains. Saunders. “Forget the money. If you win, you become the face of boxing. So we were waiting for it, but it obviously didn’t happen. So I have no comment on that. I wasted months and months of my time ”.
Eddie Hearn is no longer answering Billy Joe Saunders’ phone
The problem for Saunders, says the fighter himself, is that he has no date to fight again. And that its promoter, Eddie hearn, the phone doesn’t even answer anymore.
“I send a message to Eddie hearn, I dial him on the phone, and he does not answer, nor does he return the call ”, he claims Saunders. “So I’ll just leave it to MTK (their handlers) and I’ll let them deal with it. “
The super middleweight champion of the OMB ensures that he has no qualms about making a public claim to Eddie hearn.
“I don’t need to be attached to certain people or be friendly,” he explains. Saunders. “It’s just business, and I know it. Let’s get our business done, and get me a fight. Let’s do business together and get a fight. For the moment, I’m still waiting. This week, things can change. They need to change ”.
If there is no rival, Saunders asks the WBO for the mandatory
Saunders ask the OMB to put his mandatory fight against the first classified in the category, before the complication to find a rival.
“If they cannot find me a date or rival, let’s stick to my contract and make the mandatory”, he asks. Saunders. “I’m sure the (mandatory rival) is Zach Parker“.
The British assures that he does not want to stay all of 2020 without fighting.
“If I don’t fight this year, I will fight until February or March, which is not ideal,” he explains. Saunders. “I would be out for a year, so I don’t want to waste this year. I need to know very soon, or that the OMB I ordered my mandatory fight ”.
Ensures that nobody wants to fight with him
And he ensures that nobody wants to fight him.
“The coach of Callum smith, Joe gallagher, ensures that there is not enough money (for a unification) ”, argues Saunders. “He Canelo bring a lawsuit. (Demetrius) Andrade He’s just wandering around doing setup fights and fighting strangers. Right now, who wants to fight? “
