Billy Joe Saunders was victorious this past Saturday night and defeated his mandatory challenger Willie Monroe Jr via unanimous decision.
The fight wasn’t a memorable one and Saunders admitted that he felt a bit rusty and needed to shake off the cobwebs.
After the bout, everyone’s attention was on Golovkin-Canelo. Had ‘GGG’ won, it would have been Saunders next in line most likely. But the draw result certainly mixed things up a bit.
