BILLY JOE SAUNDERS is very talented, highly skilled, but fiercely competitive as well. I was impressed that, against Chris Eubank Jnr, he went straight to work, he didn’t allow Eubank to settle and that showed his experience. It was always going to be tough down the stretch because Eubank is so well-conditioned. Saunders’ biggest strength is his hunger, that personal pride, he can’t allow himself to be beaten. But that will only take you so far. I’m the better fighter all-round. Everything he can do I can do to a better standard and I also have the power. He might win one or two early rounds but by the fourth or fifth, I’ll find the punch to end the fight.
