Mike Tyson, one of boxings all time greats, has stated that he doesn’t see Billy Joe Saunders standing a chance against Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.
Alvarez and Saunders are set to face off on May 8th in one of 2021’s most hotly anticipated fights. Saunder’s holds an impressive undefeated 30-0 record, whilst ‘Canelo’ is boxing’s current p4p number 1.
However, Mike Tyson does not believe the fight will be as close as many fans of the sport do. Speaking on his Hotboxin Podcast, Tyson had the following to say about Saunders’ chances:
“He’s knocked out right now, he’s knocked out already, I swear, he’s knocked out.” (H/T Mail Online).
Alternatively, Tyson Fury, one boxings biggest current stars appears to be actually backing Saunders in this fight. He posted the following on his Instagram:
“Billy Joe Saunders is 100% mentally in the right place. He knows what he has to do and he will do it, he will rise up [to the to] and claim greatness. I was wrote off many times in the past and have always come through. WE are cut from the same cloth, same breed of animals.”
“Canelo has fought them all but never a Fighting Gypsy, we are a different breed of animal to anything he has come across before. #YESHEWILL. World domination with the help of God.“
