In response to Jason Abelson’s queries, Saunders talks big fights for the future, the challenges of performing in your opponent’s “back-garden,” his battle plan for Saturday night, and the difference between wild lions and caged lions.

“But for right now, what appears certain is Canelo vs Golovkin II will take place sometime within the next several months, and Saunders vs Lemieux is definitely going down on December 16. And while the latter match-up may not be half as lucrative as the former, it’s still an attractive pairing given the contrasting styles of the fighters and the recent performances of both men. The slick boxing Saunders is coming off a convincing and one-sided win over Willie Monroe, while Lemieux has notched four consecutive victories, including an impressive, one-punch knockout of Curtis Stevens.” From “The End Of Middleweight Madness?” by Neil Crane
