7 weeks roughly, can see why canelo dragged out these negotiations. He's chosen a really inactive fighter and given him a really short conformed camp.

From all the interviews around the fury fight it doesn't look like Ben d and bjs have been doing any prep together. Anyone know if Billy is in half decent shape?

Everything looks stacked in canelo favour here.

Is this shit still on? As Raymann says all this fannying about has only helped Canelo. Mind you BJS has looked decent from the training vids that have been posted.

Yeah the thing most stacked in his favour is he's a far superior fighter

Canelo via body shots 9th
Saunders far too heavy legged at super middle and needs to go back to ingle for this to have any chance.

Saunders should be in good shape, he was training with Brook & Galahad in Sheffield before their fights at the start of February & has been training with Davison & Josh Taylor for a few weeks since.

I don’t think it matters as I think Canelo’s a different beast at SMW, I never rated him that highly when he was at 154 but once he moved up it quickly became evident that his weight cut was hindering his performances.

I think he outboxes Saunders & the stoppage comes in the second half of the fight.

Yeah, it was the weight cuts. He wasn't able to enjoy his steaks when he had to cut all that weight.
