By Vanessa Ekpereka (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Gypsy King, Tyson Fury, is predicting a sensational victory for his fellow traveller Billy Joe Saunders against the world’s pound-for-pound king, Canelo Alvarez in their world super-middleweight multi-title fight here in Arlington on Saturday night.
The US indoor boxing record crowd of 70,000 seated under the roof of the Dallas Cowboys Stadium expects to see the great Canelo chase down the elusive, fast, agile, fluidly moving Saunders and eventually demolish him.
However, Fury insists: ‘There will be no ducking, diving and dodging by Billy Joe this time. He will shock the world by winning and by the way he does it.
‘Canelo is a very good fighter but he will find himself being hit flush in the face from beginning to an end.’
The perceived wisdom is that Saunders lacks the heaviness of punch to hold off Alvarez but Fury says: ‘Billy Joe has hidden power for which he is not given the credit. Canelo is about to find that out. And that he is up against the best British boxer.
Fury, however, disagrees, saying, ‘He will also be facing the appetite for fighting of the travelling community. We grow up fighting from birth. We love it. Canelo will also be under a curse now put out there. There will be gypsy magic in the air.’
