Billy Joe Saunders and David Lemieux has not been made official just yet but rumours are strong and both fighters are keen to fight.
After a very long layoff, Saunders was scheduled to fight interim champ Avtandil Khurtdsidze but that obviously took a bad left turn and got cancelled. The WBO middleweight champion is looking to get back in action on September 16th and Lemieux has accepted the challenge.
“C*** boy are you next in line so let’s go,” wrote Saunders according to boxingscene.com
The heavy-handed Canadian did not pull any punches with his response and fired back.
