Billy Joe Saunders will be knocked out early says WBO International Middleweight Champion Gary O’Sullivan in the battle of the undefeated fighters at the Wembley Arena in London on Saturday, July 20.
Dubliner O’Sullivan clashes with rival Saunders on a huge night of boxing alongside heavyweight Dereck Chisora, Carl Frampton and Paul Butler.
The 28-year-old, known as the Celtic Rebel, has won all 16 fights stopping 10 early - with six in the first round.
O’Sullivan has been looking forward to a fight with Saunders for a long time and is confident he will take his unbeaten record.
“I’ve been expecting to fight Saunders for some time now and I’m as ready as I’ll ever be to beat him,” Said O’Sullivan.
“This won’t be going the distance, I’ll get to Saunders early and it will end by knockout,”
“Regardless, I’ve prepared for a hard twelve rounds against Saunders, I’ve had good notice and I’m in the best condition, even if it does go the distance I’ll win,”
“I’ve fought in England plenty of times before and beaten a good Matthew Hall. This is the biggest fight of my career but I’m ready to step up and prove that I’m in the best.”
Headlining the action is a heavyweight battle between Dereck Chisora and unbeaten American Malik Scott. Also on the card is Belfast star Carl Frampton defending his IBF Intercontinental Super-Bantamweight title; one of Britain’s hottest and most exciting young prospects, Ellesmere Port’s Paul Butler, plus London super-middleweight star Frank Buglioni.
Completing the card is light-heavyweight talent Calum Johnson from Boston; 2008 Olympian/2007 World Amateur Championship Bronze Medalist Bradley Saunders, Bradley Skeete, Steve O’Meara, Gary Corcoran, Mitchell Smith, Billy Morgan, Tom Baker v John Dignum and Joey Taylor.
