WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders will now be trained by Sheffield-based Dominic Ingle after splitting with Adam Booth.

Saunders left original trainer Jimmy Tibbs last year before joining Booth’s London gym. In September, after leaving Tibbs but before joining Booth, he laboured past Artur Akavov to make the first defence of his title.

The Hatfield southpaw, who has not fought since, will now train out of Ingle’s famed Wincobank gym, which currently boasts the likes of Kell Brook and Kid Galahad.
