Gary O'Sullivan plans an early assualt on Billy Joe Saunders

WBO International Middleweight Champion O’Sullivan (16-0) from Cork has been looking forward to a fight with the Hatfield traveller, and is confident about taking his his unbeaten record. O'Sullivan, from Cork, Ireland, said:   “This won’t be going the distance, I’ll get to Saunders early and it will end by knockout.   “Regardless, I’ve prepared for a hard twelve rounds against Saunders, I’ve had good notice and I’m in the best condition, even if it does go the distance I’ll win,”   “I’ve fought in England plenty of times before and beaten a good Matthew Hall. This is the biggest fight of my career but I’m ready to step up and prove that I’m in the best.”   Billy Joe Saunders' British and Commonwealth titles will not be contested as he is expected to face mandatory challenger John Ryder on the 21st September at the Copperbox, East London - the first professional boxing event to take place at the former Olympic venue.
