Saunders And Lemieux Ready For War




At Tuesday’s press conference to publicise Saturday’s WBO middleweight title clash between the champion Billy Joe Saunders and hard hitting challenger David Lemieux at Place Bell in Laval, Quebec, Canada, Saunders promised to make a statement while former IBF titleholder Lemieux insisted the undefeated British fighter will hit the deck.

 

Speaking at the press conference, Saunders said: “David has no chance of winning, and I’m convinced that he will not make the distance against me. I’m willing to bet part of my purse to charity if I lose and the winner will choose which charity to give it to. I’m not here for the money or anything like that, I’m here to make a statement. There’s no point in talking anymore, all that matters now is what happens on Saturday.”

 

Lemieux Commented: “I’ve never said that I doubted his chin. Regardless he will hit the floor. And whether I win by knock out or go 12 rounds, it’s no matter. But I will drop him and I will hurt him. There are a lot of fans in England who’ve written to me because they don’t like Saunders, and they want me to get rid of him. I’ll do everyone a favor, I’ll take care of him.”
