Vanessa Ekpereka (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Billy Joe Saunders will see his unbeaten record shattered by knock-out on May 5, according to Chris Eubank Jr, who is so confident he’s lumping £10,000 on a Canelo Alvarez victory.
The Welwyn Garden City fighter and the Mexican face-off in Texas next month to unify the WBO, WBC and WBA belts in a blockbuster super-middleweight clash.
Eubank Jr suffered his first professional defeat against Saunders in 2014, but believes he’ll be outclassed in front of the 60,000 crowd.
‘Saunders is going to get hurt. I’m going to be putting a £10,000 bet on Canelo to knock Saunders out,’ the 31-year-old told TalkSport..
‘That’s what I think is going to happen, I think Saunders is going to get knocked out.’
Alvarez’s last defeat came back in 2013 against 50-0-0 icon Floyd Mayweather, but he’s been on a roll since.
