Eddie Hearn, promoter of WBO middleweight champion (up to 76.2 kg), Briton Billy Joe Saunders (29-0-0, 14 KO), who intends to compete 28th November in Britain, named possible rivals.
“Dmitry Chudinov, Martin Murray, Rocky Fielding and John Ryder,” Hearn said in an interview with IFL TV. “Look, I’ll be honest, I’d rather give this opportunity to Murray and Fielding. Ryder is going to be a tough fight.
People will always be unhappy. Of course, I would like the British to be the rival, given that travel restrictions are still pending. “
Saunders hasn’t played since last November when he knocked out unbeaten Argentine Marcelo Coceres in the 11th round (28-1-1, 15 KO).
