Saunders appeared characteristically bullish about his chances as he shared his view “Styles make fights. It’s the classic matchup between the boxer and the puncher and I’m looking forward to it. I was born to fight and I’m going to prove it by unifying the belts as soon as I’m done with David.”

Saunders then shared a claim that he believes Lemieux is a litmus test before moving on to bigger fights against the other champions.  Lemieux is my tester for the winner of Canelo and Golovkin.”
