BILLY JOE SAUNDERS feels his challenge for Andy Lee’s WBO world middleweight strap on December 19 eclipses Miguel Cotto-Saul Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin’s unification win over David Lemieux last month.

Having twice been postponed, Lee-Saunders headlines at the Manchester Arena on what looks set to be a stacked show.

Despite the worldwide attention Golovkin-Lemieux garnered and the gargantuan size of Cotto-Canelo, Saunders believes his clash with Lee outdoes them both.
