Saunders no longer wants Alvarez fight in September
Billy Joe Saunders (29-0, 14 KOs) has announced that he is no longer going to waste his efforts on the meeting Saul Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KOs), who is due to return to the ring on September 12. They were supposed to cross gloves on May 2, but shortly before the announcement of the duel in the United States, an epidemic of coronavirus broke out.
The British remained all this time in the USA and was waiting for a new date of meeting with the Mexican, but they eventually changed their plans. Alvarez plans to return to the ring in early autumn, and at the end of the year he wants to have a big fight.
In recent weeks the Alvarez team has been negotiating with other potential rivals. Among them, the media mentioned Anthony Dirrell, Caleb Plant and David Benavidez.
