Scottish light welterweight Mitch Prince has been announced as the replacement opponent for undefeated Bradley Saunders, following news last week of original challenger Paul McClosky having withdrawn on medical advice.
The fight takes place on Saturday 29th March in Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle on a packed show featuring three title fights and ten unbeaten prospects. Champions Jon Lewis Dickinson, Stuart Hall and Frankie Gavin all defend their crowns against very well respected, closely matched challengers.
Saunders, unbeaten in eight pro fights, shared his excitement on social network sites at the news, “New opponent confirmed. He’s from Scotland, Mitch Prince, 16 fights - lost 2. Coming to win, comes to fight so he can have one. Find out on Monday if it’s for a title. Wait till he hears my North East crowd.”
The 29 year old stand-in opponent from Cumbernauld, Scotland recently took Commonwealth light welterweight…Continue
Karceno: Big Floyd what was your grade for Canelo's performance over Angulo?
Floyd Sr. "Well to me, it don't look like he had to do that much, you see Angulo wasn't trying to hit him back with anything hard to me, that is and Canelo he just kept doing the same thing over and over, one, two, three and hook."
Karceno: Do you feel the fight should have been stopped?
Floyd Sr. "Should it have been stopped, hell yeah, he wasn't doing nothing but taking punishment. He wasn't doing anything that was making a difference, no head movement, he wasn't throwing any punches with anything on them."
Karceno what you think about Canelo conditioning for this fight?
Floyd Sr. "Well he didn't make weight so…Continue

Not sure but I've talked to quite a few people in the boxing industry about Alfredo Angulo's poor performance in the ring. Everyone saw the power shots that Canelo Alvarez was throwing at him. When we saw Angulo fire back it was like a pity pat game. Tap tap tap. No POWER. I had one trainer called me up and say that Angulo has been over trained. This is a sign of a fighter that has nothing left by the time they get into the ring.
Another insider told me that Angulo was kinda thankful for Canelo suggesting the 155lb limit because he was struggling making the weight too. Remember Angulo came in 154.5 and if you notice come fight night, he blew up to 174lbs. He picked up 20lbs in 24 hours. That is a sign of a person that really really drained themselves to make weight. It is unnatural. The…Continue
