BILLY JOE SAUNDERS and his promoter Frank Warren have given Gennady Golovkin and his team a deadline to strike a deal for a middleweight unification clash between the unbeaten pair.

Golovkin defended his WBA, WBC and IBF world titles against Danny Jacobs earlier this month and then described a meeting with Saunders as his “dream fight.”

Saunders – who is willing to travel to Golovkin’s native Kazakhstan for the potential June fight – today released a video in which he said a deal must be reached by Friday, or else he will move on.
