The WBO super-middleweight recently signed to Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing but has yet to fight since winning the title back in May.
It was revealed by The Independent that Saunders would feature on the undercard of the two YouTube stars, news which has been met with a mixed reception.
The 30-year-old is usually trained by Ben Davison, who has Tyson Fury and Isaac Lowe to his stable but has rejoined the Ingle Gym for his fight on 9 November.
The fight will be Saunders’ first in the United States, and Ingle told IFL TV the world champion’s thoughts on the fight.
“I asked Billy and he just laughed and said ‘as long as I’m getting paid, I don’t care. They’re not my weight, I’m the world champion’.
“They’re never going to be world champions but they bring in a whole new audience – whether they’re going to get turned on by boxing or not I’ve no idea.
“It’s exposure, if not then oh well, nothing lost.
“When Billy goes into the arena, in his mind he’s the main attraction. They aren’t proper fighters, they’re on the first step of the ladder.
They have got a big fan base, there’s obviously demand for it.”
Saunders’ opponent has yet to be announced and is expected to be a routine defence before facing the likes of Callum Smith in 2020.
