|Saunders after winning the title at the Royal Albert Hall. (April 28th).|
In his last outing Saunders blitzed through his opponent Tony Hill with a barrage of non-stop heavy punches and stopped him in just 30 seconds. This was the main event of the show, on boxing's return to the Royal Albert Hall. This fantastic performance on such a big stage has made him confident that he has what it takes to compete with the best and go far in his career.
|Welshman Bradley Pryce.|
"I had a first round stoppage against Tommy Tolan before Hill as well and I'm not expecting Pryce to go as quick, but with the way I'm punching at the moment who knows?... He's a hard fight and he's had over twice as many fights as me against a lot of top men in Britain around the weight so this is without a doubt my toughest fight yet."
Saunders' promoter Frank Warren also believes that this will be a tougher test for his young fighter: "Billy surprised everyone with his speed and power and how quick he stopped Tony Hill last time out, even me. Pryce is very tough and has some good wins on his record so Billy will have to be on the ball against him."
The undercard will also feature a lot of young talented prospects. The two confirmed so far are Liverpool super-featherweight Stephen Smith and unbeaten super-middleweight Frank Buglioni.
Tickets are available for £40 or £60 from Frank Warren's promotion box (01992 550 888) or from www.frankwarren.tv. It looks like it's going to be a great night of boxing. Well, it always is at the York Hall, and with the likes of Buglioni and Saunders there with there army of fans it will be a cracking atmosphere.
