"And i'm not saying that he all of a sudden morphed into a new fighter no is just a. He has more tools in his belt. Man billy joe as much as i want to say that that you know he could probably land a good punch. We know that billy joys knocking them out does not knocking them out. If genero fights exactly like he did it gets count smith. That's not going to be good enough to catch. Billy joe saunderson. Definitely not true. Yeah i ate more the more. I think about it the more i i. It's difficult to see canelo stopping billie joe. Not because he can't and not because he doesn't have the talent just because of the kind of fight that i see plain out Favors one where canelo probably gets a lot of the rounds but Or definitely gets up most of the rounds of but doesn't favor him being in a position to knock him out now. I could see like a stoppage where you know. He's take into much punishment or an accumulation of but even that is something that i i think this probably goes the distance like i wouldn't bet on stoppage like you know what i'm thinking about when i think about this fight i'm thinking about amir. Khan amir khan boxes. Face off for five rounds and billie joe will not let what happened to amir. Khan happened to him. He's too smart. He won't allow that to happen at all. Billy's bigger to Yeah he's definitely got you know he's he's he's big boned. Whatever you wanna call it. But he's not he doesn't look like a scrawny guy. I just don't give him the same speed in as some of the other guys that you mentioned Maybe i'm wrong. I think he's just again Billy joel he's bringing his. I think more than anything is what he said at the at the at the first press kaos right the heart. He's not afraid he's not looking at cannella. Like all these other guys have. And that's a big big up in the in the in the mental of a fight and another thing. Is that billy you know. He's casting spells. Gypsy magic yeah. I'm hearing a lot of that so you know that was a joke. Well let me Counterpunched might j. see counterparts.

"Preparation is second to none at the moment. So we're going to get a prime billy joe saunders against prime canelo an undefeated fighter who has the opportunity to record a victory over the number one pound for pound fighter in the world. That's huge so he can make history and you may not know this but the traveler race. Boxing is their national sports. So he's got enormous support in that way and he genuine can create a legacy with this one victory. It can go down as arguably one of the greatest british victories of all time. So all of that fire that l. Have under him makes him a great opponent for cannella at this time. I believe i'm really excited about the fight. I'm really looking forward to getting into billy's kamphaus ten days before being around him being around it all it's going to be tremendous is benefited from years of working with people. Like who's only in his twenties. I think is one of the great train is in the world's various look what he did with tyson fury bringing him back from the brink helping him lose ten stone. Take him into that. I dante while defy. So he's an advisor to billie joe that close friends as well as mark. Tips training billie joe. So yeah. i'm really really excited about this contest. Really excited and we know he's gonna talk a lot over the next couple of months though. I got a cigarette. I don't know that works on canal. I mean nobody talked more than you can enable sanchez fight whether it was about kamilo running in the first fight or effectively calling him like the barry bonds of boxing with all the drugs that they alleged reported that he had probably been taking at some point his career and canelo just use that as fuel and then took it to get in ways that no fighter had taken it to go off before so i don't know the trash talk. We're no i agree with you. I don't know it's like he's very similar characters tyson fury. He'll do the unexpected. Like if you wanna get stuck into canal push him at the way in sop his face do something unusual. And if billy wants to do something unusual. He'll do it. And if enough travelers enough of billy supporters can go over for the event. I hope they do. It'll make a great occasion. Rodney be another home. Fight for cannella. In america home fights so i think cannella it doesn't engage in that.

"If he's going to be active enough to steal rounds one thing. There are two things that have quasi worked against kinetico. In recent years there was power. Jab goff had has one of the stiffest strongest jabs and all of boxing in that second fight. Cannella one one. I thought deservedly. But he took a lot of power. Jasmine galapagos pumping it pumping it and pumping it and keeping cannella at bay a little bit. Then there was the kovolev style kovolev. I don't think was winning the fight when it was knocked out. But he was throwing hundreds of jabs he was just flicking out there over and over and over again. I think saunders has an effective jab but can he do it with the consistency with the regularity that we saw kovolev can he do with more accuracy because sitting ringside for the kovalov fight. It was very clear. That defense is excellent. Was either gobbling up those punches or avoiding them with his head movement. So it's a long way of saying gareth can cause problems but just like with kovalyov and just like with gluskin. I just feel like kamilo is eventually going to catch up with you. Encounter with made this point. And i know what you think about accounts smith to just said. I don't know that. If billy joe saunders has the power to get canals respects. I'm paraphrasing a little bit there but basically talked me about his power cove least theoretically had the power that can be wary of if canals. Not afraid of your power. He's gonna keep walking you down and walking you down absorbing jabs and hammering you with big heading but you say that's the massive thing in this fight he's got to either hurt cannella at some point or totally respect totally get his respects so that canelo isn't walking through firepower or walking through punches because he will You mentioned areas. Landy laura there. I think that's a really good comparison because he's got a similar even though. It's a cuban style. Billy and his words has the gypsy style. Which has been doing it since he was five years old. Completely comfortable as a say in the office. Laura's a very similar type of opponent. Laura south as well wasn't he and he gave any gave canal issues. But it's not six years ago. I was out in the fight hunger. I think it was set up. I think we've probably both out the fire. We'll probably both at that. I remember i was. I'm sure you were it was wasn't it you know. And that's the guy i've been looking at but has canal really changed since then i think he has. So that's that's the kind of you got to be tricky with him. But like you say the key thing is he's got to land and he's got to land effectively and he's got to keep canal off him. You know so. But it's fascinating because no one's undone billy joe saunders. No one's beaten him is an undefeated. What does he thirty and also twenty eight thirty. no. I think so. No one's beaten him. And when you get a fight toes undefeated who has that confidence coming into a fight like this. And also i do. Billy has been waiting for the right moment for this fight obviously was due to fight. Camello lost i think may was going to be the fight but oversee that wasn't happening during cove it was due to fight him around august time was knee and then decided no. I want the opportunity. Because i don't want to do it on nineteen days notice. I wanna full camp. And i respect him for that. He doesn't care about. The money obviously is going to be paid handsomely for the feet but he.

"Abcd plans he's got to get in is got to commands the space between them and he's got a land combinations and get out because i don't think he's gonna knock canal out he so durable. He's got brilliant. Chin he is punch volume is enormous I'm fascinated in the jewel when they exchange And i think given. I don't want to say that canal is going to get gonna get a decision if it goes to points but he is likely to so because he's very catching and everything he does. He's worked out being busy in the first thirty lost thirty seconds of around the renault. Soza walk on old tricks for him. So i think. Billy joe saunders can be canal But he's gotta throw combinations and get away again. He's got to engage enough to win rounds and he's gotta be up in rounds when they get around six or seven. He's got to be a couple of rounds ahead. i do. I want your take on it as well. Because i'm fascinated how you see it but i think billy joe saunders when he shop is clearly up for this as you saw with his instagram post straight away with his apron on his swinging fake dildo hanging off his apron. Did you see that. I did not always you gotta go back on his instagram. A you've got to say. Let me write that down. Let me go see that. Go see things to do. Fake pay the signing off his apron. It was very funny. But saunders is very skillful he really is. I don't know how you see the fight whether you think it's a protest test for nilo. I think it's probably going to be his toughest test since. Go off a tougher test than even daniel jacobs who was pretty good against canelo. At times i think saunders. His boxing skills are among the best. Cannella has ever faced can elo. He's face some good boxers most of them earlier in his career. When he's going up against aris landy. Lower at of course floyd mayweather. Since then he's fought more mcglaughlin more power puncher koto kind of back end of his career at that time so he hasn't face someone with those types of skills and i think saunders up for it. He's always up for big fights. He's often down for the lesser ones. But we know. We're going to get the best of billy joe saunders like we did against chris eubank and like we did against david lemieux so i think the best a billy joe saunders has certainly has the ability over the course of twelve rounds to call. 'cause i don't.

"I just wanna go with the guy that's earn the opportunity and the mu who has had inactivity problems of his own as we mentioned Has been more active than yildirim and was certainly more deserving based on past performances than anyway the end of the fight you get the announcement that we all knew. It was coming billy joe saunders against canelo hundred sixty eight pound unification fight. That'll take place may location to be determined. I thought last round last year. Iran in december when the callum smith fight was approaching. I believe count smith was number one at one sixty eight. I thought he was the most proven guy at supermiddleweight title ring magazine whenever whenever accolades you wanna give him. I thought he was the best but there certainly are. I think a lot more people that believe billy. Joe saunders is a tougher test for carmelo then cabs smith whether it's oscar de la. Hoya who talked about that this week. You've had john writer. Who of course. Associated with billie joe with matchroom other fighters. I've read say similar things. Do you believe that. Billy joe saunders. Tougher test for kinetico ben. Callum smith stylistically yes And i think i think billy joe saunders when and if he faces callum smith i think he'll beat him as well you know because i think his skill set. I think it's a weird fight. An a fight with a lot of feeling out. And i'm mccallum smith and billy joe saunders. Now but i've known. Billy joe saunders. A long time since he was an olympian back in beijing in two thousand and eight when he was eighteen. He's probably the best boxer pound for pound in the uk. Maybe josh taylor. As well fits into that. Mold may be tyson fury but i think the skill if saunders is really on his game he could be very tricky for canal. But i think the cannella was saying the moment will be very patient with him. So i do see. Cannella was the favourite. The big thing for us over here in is can this guy billy joe saunders who has always you know. He was brilliant games and e lee. He worked his way through a very aggressive tenacious. Chris eubank junior. What is it maybe. Six seven years ago now maybe five or six. But he's always found a way because he's not just great footwork and timing and skill set and comfort in office in the square circle but he moves brilliantly from the waist he changes levels so well he south pole the big problem for billy i think in this fight is an overseas out in camp in spain at the moment working with Jimmy tibbs With with mark tibbs the son of the very renowned trainer. Jimmy tibbs zoo even spoiled with molly is ago and he's very loved and revered in all in all wells over here billy joe saunders needs a strategy and a game plan against canal he needs..

"Boxing journalists with the telegraph talksport. Many other outlets we discuss. Cannella says is lopsided win over ali. Yildirim sanctioning bodies. What can they do to prevent the likes of yildirim from being put in the mandatory positions. We look ahead to kamilo against billy joe saunders that fight scheduled for may eight and tyson fury against anthony. Joshua are we anticipating any problems with that heavyweight unification classes. Kind of actually wait. That fight being finalized a little bit later on clarisa shields the three division world champion.

"Because you had the billie joe solis performance against david to compare with as well and that's this was a semi final before the final wasn't it in a way so you know if cannella had gone in there and had war with him for five rounds it would have given us a benchmark to talk about what billie joe did with david lemieux and a natural precursor to building up the fight. So nice matchmaking. Misdemeanor day well. I just want to go. With the guy that's earned the opportunity and lemieux who has had inactivity problems of his own as we mentioned. has been more active than yildirim and was certainly more deserving based on past performances then yielding anyway the end of the fight.

"Yildirim. I mean it was almost like being drugged. He obviously wasn't drugged but it's like it's somewhat of giving him a sedative. You know what i mean. There was no fighting him. But i wonder talking about canal in that way whether he felt the aura of canal during the week and he was actually beaten before he stepped in there. And that's the only way. I completely ably give him the out rather than harangue what he actually did in there. You know you can. I could argue that. You could have thrown more punches. You to be knocked out in thirty seconds as i would have been but you could have thrown a journeyman. Let's say could a throw more punches and put on a better performance than avenue yildirim. It was staggeringly mystifying. Because solely did i think so one straight right and a couple of fences to the body and other than that. He was a punch bag for canelo. Not saying. i wasn't delighted. That cannella one because i want to see him in against billy joe saunders and i know we'll come on to that but it was just weird and avni let the event down in many ways because every event with canelo is so big. I know we're working on these things so we tend to see them as big a to the whole world but in our niche area. He's a big deal. Every time he steps up now does zone promote him. Wonderfully eddie hearn. Did a great job wearing his pajamas during the week. You know white pajamas on fight night. Dull chain cabana black pajamas on the friday. And i'm not sure garrett. I'm not sure which was a weirder. Be honest you definitely the black dolgin cabana. Because eddie gives me stick about my hair is eighties like george michael you know. He gives me stick about wearing vans. emma fifties. And you know must shirt waistcoat. But i mean to be honest if any promoters going to pull it off. It's it's at. he heard. I mean god. Forbid bob arum now. Turns up into pair of pajamas. Who but you know. I it was. It was just such a shame. Yildirim wasn't the bull that he normally is in the ring. The study that he can be you know because i thought he'd go out on his sword after three or five rounds and we we you know the canal would do what he did against callum smith and just show how clever is But it was a real disappointment. Genuinely real despondent. When you're getting up to cover a four in the morning here and writing about it oh it you know. It was a shame. It was a shame but it will. He is an event now in himself. Isn't it. I mean you around him more what you interviewed him he east fascinating now. Isn't it because he's opened up a little bit more. You know well. I mean he has certainly done that and he just loses confidence in a way. I haven't seen really since floyd mayweather. I mean there's just a unflinching belief that nobody can touch him that he's the best spider in the world with its against talim smith or against yield. That's that's a transition We're seeing canal over the last two three years. Really since the second off can fight.

Then a singer do you enjoy performing and do you enjoy doing your own songs Yes I do. I can't imagine how it would be to to do other people's songs because I've it's such a wonderful thing to be able to do your own tins. You get to catch little capsule of time that that you invented there and you get to step into for that that moment. Now what I understand from your songs he didn't start performing until until after years of of working Jobs have doing manual labor. I actually had an accident in a sawmill in it. In. It had to pull off my two fingers on his right hand and then the no-one got the end of it knocked off and the Little Farrakhan banged up but I still got a good thumb on hand. So I but that's what happened to me and I decided I would start writing songs and playing the guitar the see you set up your fingers at an accident in a sawmill Yeah. How did you end up? Playing Guitar after that I was about twenty eight years old in a in a it hit me that I should be doing. What I'm supposed to do because had been writing all the time since I was a little kid. I'd been singing and stuff and. Just, never had got serious with guitar yet and so when when this happened right it very it happened just hit me right in the heart that I wasn't doing what I'm supposed to do I. Guess if I hadn't had these things cut off a probably wouldn't be doing what I'm doing now but. Anyway. Something has to Kinda hit me overhead the head before i. Figured out and but. The reason I started playing guitar. I guess it was the hardest thing for me to do to and my arm was in bad shape head vote electrodes on it to make it start moving again swallowed up almost lost it. And and playing the guitar helps it. Now. He sits you right hand engraved. Yeah. So what do you do like Fred with Muller Tannin just whack away at it with. US A pick no I don't I just use my fingers and my mom. And my little finger. So I'm not a great guitar player, but I play good enough that I write songs and and play in front of people. So it's no big deal. So once you decided that you weren't doing what you were supposed to be doing, what you should be doing is is playing music and writing songs. What did you do to start off on that new life? I just started doing started writing songs and I got some good songs together and I. went up to Nashville and then about in seventy one or so Bobby put out a song I wrote. Rabid uneasy and it went number one country and then. Waylon Jennings did a whole album of songs called Honky. tonk. Heroes. And Johnny Rodriguez had a hit on one. I couldn't be me without you and then Old Chunk of Coal John Anderson had a hit with and. Elvis Presley Bob Dylan Chris Kristofferson Tom t hall Johnny Cash Willie Nelson Just, people just started recording montanes. We Sang Elvis. Elvis did one call just because you asked me to. Is a song that Waylon and I wrote together. Can you think a couple of bars? long ago, and far, away. In my old common labor shoes I turned the world to where he's just because you asked me to. Away the but the chorus is a lead, the world com Fu both things you ride with me and you. That's all in matters and I'll do anything. Yes. I WanNa play something else from your new album trump on your street I I want to play the song.
