ADAM BOOTH, trainer of WBO middleweight champion Andy Lee, believes his man is at his peak for tonight’s clash with Billy Joe Saunders at the Manchester Arena.

This world title fight has been twice postponed but it’s given Lee plenty of time to prepare. “Andy’s a consummate professional,” Booth explained. “His base level of fitness has been maintained for such a long period of time.

“His physical conditioning is peaking, when you consider his determination, his desire, the fact that he’s become a world champion (he wants to keep that belt now), his age, his experience. This is a good time for Andy.”
