Billy Joe Saunders laboured to victory against the less than average Shefat Isufi at the Lamex Stadium in Stevenage on Saturday night but where does the new Super Middleweight champion go from here.

 

Billy Joe Saunders made a shock announcement back in February stating that he would be moving up to the Super Middleweight division. Saunders voluntarily gave up his WBO Middleweight title after he was found to be using the banned substance Oxilofrine. Saunders blamed his use of the substance on a prescription nasal spray.

 

Billy Joe Saunders was practically able to do whatever he wanted against a very poor opponent in Isufi, seemly cherry picked by Frank Warren.  At the post fight interview Saunders spoke about a potential match up with WBA Super Middleweight Champion Callum Smith.  Callum Smith is scheduled to defend his title in June of this year and therefore a bout between the two would be doubtful in 2019. However there is another lucrative opportunity at Super Middleweight with current IBO Super Middleweight Champion, Chris Eubank Jr.

 

Billy Joe Saunders is a very skilled boxer who heavily relies on his reflexes and speed to out box his opponents. However at Super Middleweight Saunders looked visibly slower and easier to hit.

 

It would be a huge mistake for Saunders to pursue his ambitions at Super Middleweight against any of the current champions.  In fact, Saunders looks every bit the natural Middleweight and with Canelo Alvarez currently having both the Middleweight division and the world in the palm of his hands, surely Saunders and his team should be planning for some sort of  legacy.
