The promoter confirmed the WBO World Middleweight Champion’s next opponent will be finalised next week.

“We’ll name his opponent and date but he will have a mega fight in the summer.”

Warren went on to clarify the situation regarding a potential unification bout with Gennady Golovkin “It won’t be Golovkin in April, that’s the date we were offered.

“For me, it’s a football stadium type fight. Not saying we don’t want the fight, Bill wants to do it but it needs to make sense,” revealed Warren.

Speaking exclusively on Bunce’s Boxing Hour, Saunders’ promoter continued “It’s about making the fight on the right terms and more importantly at the right time.”
