1. Billy Joe Saunders
Saunders claimed the WBO title when he outpointed Ireland’s Andy Lee at the weekend, meaning if Golovkin were to fight and beat Saunders, his clash with Canelo would be for all the middleweight marbles.
Saunders is unbeaten and now proven at world level. A slick southpaw with decent power, Billy Joe would be a tough night for any middleweight. However, the Hatfield man has stated he feels he is not yet ready to face Golovkin, but could be in 18 months.
