Frank Warren will be back at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday and the promoter wants his show to be the first of many.

Billy Joe Saunders will fight Tony Hill for the Commonwealth middleweight title, the first time a fight has been staged at the venue since Julius Francis beat Danny Williams in 1999. "In an ideal world, I'd like to do at least eight shows a year," said Warren, who staged that last bout. "This is a chance for [Saunders and Hill] to show their talent in the best boxing venue in the world."
