  • BILLY JOE SAUNDERS NET WORTH

    Saunders will rake in a career-high pay day when he faces boxing's biggest star Canelo Alvarez this weekend in Texas.

    The two-weight world champion has already picked up some hefty purses throughout his career, however, and will be doing so again on Saturday.

    He is reportedly worth around £1.5million, according to Net Worth Portal.

    The Hertfordshire-born fighter has been in big domestic bouts with the likes of Andy Lee, John Ryder, Chris Eubank Jr and Martin Murray.

    Saunders also beat fearsome middleweight puncher David Lemieux out in Canada back in 2017.

    He was reportedly paid £715,000 for his efforts against Lemueux, who he ousted on points.

    Saunders will make £3.8m all in all for his fight with Alvarez, meaning he is set to triple his net worth in one night.

  • MAY HAPPEN

    Floyd Mayweather is in talks to fight Billy Joe Saunders if he beats Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, an insider has claimed.

    It comes with the 50-0 undefeated boxing legend considering a shock return to professional boxing.

    Mayweather was the only boxer to ever defeat Canelo, who is widely regarded as one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world.

    Brit Saunders, an undefeated WBO super middleweight champ, has a chance to cause a major upset in the boxing world if he beats the Mexican boxing star on Saturday in their world title fight.

    A victory could also lead to a match with boxing legend Mayweather, according to a source in Money's camp.

    Mayweather, who faces YouTuber Logan Paul in an exhibition match on June 6, has not fought a pro boxer since his retirement in 2017.
