Lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is currently in talks as regards his next fight.

His first fight of 2021.

His training partner and former middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders is getting ready for the biggest fight of his life on May 8th.

Certainly the toughest fight Canelo Alvarez, his opponent, will have had since Danny Jacobs a few years ago.

From a technical boxing perspective even before that, perhaps the best technical boxer for purely boxing skill that boxing kingpin Alvarez has faced since the likes of Cotto or Mayweather before that even.

That’s going back a bit.

Since then, Alvarez has made incredible leaps and bounds himself in his technical acumen in the ring.

Ahead of the fight Fury is backing Saunders big however:

The fight is scheduled for Texas where it is expected more than 60,000 passionate Mexican Alvarez fans, mostly, will be in attendance.
