THE respective teams of Gennady Golovkin and Billy Joe Saunders are still in discussions over a potential fight between the two – but the latter is sticking to his deadline of this Friday.

Plans for the fight – which would create an undisputed middleweight champion – picked up pace after ‘GGG’ outpointed Danny Jacobs a week-and-a-half ago.

However earlier this week Saunders announced that a deal must be struck by Friday or else he will look elsewhere and his promoter, Frank Warren, today confirmed to Boxing News that they are “absolutely” sticking with that.
