Frank Warren: Bradley Saunders did not discuss switch to Matchroom with me

Warren wishes his former charge well but he was not told about the switch beforehand

FRANK WARREN wishes Bradley Saunders well as the light-welterweight joins Matchroom promotions, but insists the fighter did not discuss the switch with him.

The Hall of Fame promoter guided the fighter through his first 10 professional outings after signing him at the end of his amateur career, and Saunders leaves with a WBO world ranking.

“The contract came to an end and I wish him all the best,” said Warren, “but I see his comments that he phoned me and we had a discussion about it – we didn’t. If we did I’m getting old and I don’t remember that conversation.
