“I’m feeling great, the best I’ve ever been in my career, my weight is perfect, I’m just where I want to be,” Saunders said today.

“Everything has been done in training camp and I’ve left no stone unturned, I couldn’t have done anymore and now it’s all on the line on Saturday night - there’s going to be fireworks”

“The boxing world seems to be split down the middle deciding who is going to win between us, I can’t see the reason why because for me it’s a clear cut victory for me, but everyone will see the reason why this Saturday.”
