Billy Joe Saunders poses at the press conference for his fight with Shefat Isufi

Billy Joe Saunders v Shefat Isufi for the WBO super-middleweight title.

After Saunders weighed in at the title fight limit of 168 pounds and Isufi tipped the scales at 167.4, the two combatants went forehead-to-forehead for a few moments.

Saunders talked up the possibility of a domestic dust up with Callum Smith, while suggesting the likes of Gennady Golovkin and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez have avoided him due to his style in the ring.

"Listen, my first 12-rounder at super middle".

He said the fight, at times, resembled "sparring practice", as Saunders (28-0, 13 KOs) was able to have his way with Isufi (27-4-2, 20 KOs) by moving around the ring and using his right jab to initiate his methodical attack.

"I want the big fights".

"I'll have a week off but then I'll be back in the gym and willing to go for a big fight".

But even though it was plain sailing for the most part, there was one momentary wobble when he was caught with a solid shot at the start of the sixth round.

"I've got the ability to flicker between middleweight, super-middleweight and light-heavyweight".

Last year, Saunders has suffered injuries and had a WBO middleweight title defense against Martin Murray be postponed multiple times before the fight was ultimately canceled. Thanks to my trainer Ben Davison for putting the weeks into me in camp. The big domestic fights, unification fights.

He said: "I know on my day, as long as I am 100 per cent, there isn't a middleweight or super-middleweight that can beat me".

The Saunders-Isufi fight broadcast on ESPN+ will begin at 2:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.

"You come and get a world title, step up, put all the titles on the line and it's an easy belt for him, if they think I'm too small, we can get the fight on and signed, we'll have it next".

"He is out in June and I want to be out in September".
