Unbeaten WBO World Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders has once again told Gennady Golovkin that he wants to unify.
In September 2017, Golovkin retained his WBC, WBA 'Super' and IBF belts after a controversial draw against Canelo Alvarez in Las Vegas.
A rematch seems likely for May, meaning that Saunders would face someone else in the spring before taking on the winner later this year for all of the Middleweight marbles.
However on Wednesday evening, Saunders told Golovkin and his promoter Tom Loeffler that he's ready to unify right away if Canelo doesn't want the fight.
Last month, Saunders outclassed dangerous puncher David Lemieux in Montreal, and now wants a career-defining year against the very best.
"I've had some bad performances in the past, but deep down I know what I've got in me and it's no surprise that that came out," referring to that win on the BoxNation Podcast in December. "I am definitely the slickest Middleweight in the world!"
Negotiations between Loeffler and Golden Boy Promotions for Canelo v GGG 2 are currently ongoing.
