Boxing news: Billy Joe Saunders gives brilliant breakdown of his rivals including Canelo Alvarez, Gennady Golovkin, Callum Smith and Chris Eubank Jr

Billy Joe Saunders has given a comprehensive breakdown of the middleweight and super-middleweight divisions following his big announcement.

The WBO super-middleweight champion, who is also willing to drop back down in weight for big fights, has signed a multi-fight promotional deal with Eddie Hearn following his split from Frank Warren.

You can read what he said at the press conference below.

Billy Joe Saunders on Callum Smith

“People look at him and he would be favourite going into the fight.

“He’s a great fighter, but I genuinely believe I’ve got the beating of Callum Smith and any other super-middleweight.”

Billy Joe Saunders on Chris Eubank Jr

“He’s a world class bum really.

“If I couldn’t beat him, then I’d never put on a pair of gloves again.

“I’d beat him with my eyes closed. I don’t put him in the top 5/6 in England, definitely not.”

Billy Joe Saunders on Daniel Jacobs

“I think Danny Jacobs is a brilliant fighter. I put him up there definitely.

“He’s a real, real fight and if I boxed him it’d be a hell of a fight.”

Billy Joe Saunders on Gennady Golovkin

“If I can’t beat a 37-year-old man, who’s been around a bit now, when I’m 29 in my prime then there’s something wrong and I’m not as good as I thought I was.

“I’m very confident of beating Golovkin very clearly and very widely.

“If I got that fight, then I could show people around the world how, not being big headed, show people how easily I could beat him and outbox him.

“I’d probably do a better job than Canelo, then people would probably call for that fight after.”

Billy Joe Saunders on Canelo Alvarez

“It all depends because obviously he’s the biggest name, but styles make fights.

“We seen when we boxed Lara he had all sorts of trouble. And back then Canelo was more in his prime.

“All these training camps, you see him now training with these knee supports and elbow supports.

“He’s a brilliant fighter I’m not taking anything away from him and I’m not talking him down.

“But I wouldn’t be sitting here if I couldn’t believe I could beat these.”
