Saunders to face off for vacant WBO crown

Hatfield man gets shot and vacant world super middleweight title.

By Aaron Cooper

Intuboxing.com has learned that former WBO World Middleweight Champion, Billy-Joe Saunders is in likely to step up in weight and challenge for the organisations Super-Middleweight crown in his next fight. This news comes after the World Boxing Organisation installed the Hatfield man as its number one contender in the rankings. 
 
Saunders has found himself in this lofty position following Gilberto Ramirez's decision to move up to the light-heavyweight limit of 175-pounds. The outgoing Mexican champion has leap-frogged Saunders compatriot and stablemate, Anthony Yarde and now finds himself in line for s shot at Russian champion, Sergey Kovalev.
 
Now i'm sure one or two of you are asking yourself, just how has Saunders worked his way into another title shot so soon after the debacle last year. Simple ladies and gents, simple. Let us not forget that Saunders vacated his title, he was not stripped of it. And, as per WBO rules, a champion moving up in weight will automatically challenge for the title. 
 
Saunders will undoubtedly be looking to put a torrid 2018 firmly behind him. Saunders took the decision to vacate his middleweight title after he was found to have failed a VADA test for the banned stimulant, Oxilofrine. This coupled with a number of videos, one of which showed him offering a woman crack cocaine for £150, along with offering the same woman, the same sum of money to hit a passer by, whom Saunders claimed was a known sex-offender (to which the woman actually struck the innocent man) landed him a hefty fine of £100,000 by the British Boxing Board of Control.
 
Saunders returned to the ring in Manchester in December. His opponent, Charles Adamu decided he had had enough and elected not to come out for the opening bell of the fifth round. 
 
It is likely that Saunders will face Sheft Isufi for the vacant title. Isufi is the Organisation's current Inter-Continental belt holder. With twenty seven wins, three loses and two draws on his record. Isufi's last lost came at the hands of Dariusz Sek, a former Anthony Yarde victim
