Saunders wants to nail a big-name fight

BILLY JOE SAUNDERS is tipping his old rival Chris Eubank Jr to beat George Groves when they fight for the latter’s WBA super-middleweight world title in February in Manchester.

“I think that Eubank will beat George Groves. If he does what I think he will against Groves people will be talking. I think there is a 75 percent chance that Eubank wins,” Saunders said.

But he’s confident he’d repeat a victory over Eubank if they ever rematched. “When two fighters are in the ring, you know each other and I know Eubank better than anybody,” Billy maintained. “He knows that I have the knack to beat him no matter how many times we meet.
