Mexico City-Billy Joe Saunders (Billy Joe Saunders) and his father Tom (Tom) are discussing whether to fight Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez, all because of the size of the ring that will be placed in the AT&T Stadium.
Sanders said to talkSPORT: “Everyone is trying to solve some setbacks today.” “I left this to my MTK management team to resolve. To be honest, this is a big setback.”
The problem is the size of the ring. The British claimed that they were left to fight in a 22-foot circle, while the Mexicans wanted to fight in an 18-foot or 20-foot circle.
“The problem is that I came here and they are trying to throw me into the phone booth in the boxing ring. The (stadium) is hundreds of feet long and they want to put a 16/18-foot ring in the middle, they pointed out.
Grupo REFORMA learned that the British had signed a contract, but did not specify the issue. If they decide not to participate in the battle, they will be required to pay millions of dollars in compensation. It is estimated that Billy charges about $5 million for this battle, and a lawsuit that does not fight will cost him more, and he will have no money to pay off his debts.
