BILLY JOE SAUNDERS is on course to challenge for the world title that he had to vacate last year.

In 2018 Saunders was due to defend his WBO middleweight belt against Demetrius Andrade. But an adverse anti-doping finding in America saw that contest cancelled and ultimately Billy Joe vacated his title.

Andrade won the belt against Walter Kautondokwa and successfully defended Artur Akavov on January 18.
