Billy Joe: I can rule them all!

Byline: Tom Hopkinson

WORLD middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders reckons he'd have no trouble at all ruling the super-middleweight division.

The WBO middleweight champion, who confirmed last week that he will defend his title against Martin Murray in April, said: "There's not one of those super-middleweights who I don't think I could beat. Take James DeGale out of it and there's not one who can handle a good boxer.

"George Groves got in there with a good boxer [Carl Froch], got beaten, Chris Eubank got in there with a good boxer [Saunders himself], got beaten. Callum Smith - yet to be tested. None of them could handle a good boxer."
