Frank Warren says Billy Joe Saunders wants Gennady Golovkin-Canelo Alvarez winner if he gets past David Lemieux

If Billy Joe Saunders silences David Lemieux's home fans on Saturday, promoter Frank Warren says he will fight the winner of Gennady Golovkin vs. Canelo Alvarez II.

Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) and Canelo (49-1-2, 34 KOs) are in talks for a rematch on May 5 after their controversial points draw on Sep. 16, when Saunders also made a second successful defence of his title -- the only world title not in the hands of Golovkin -- against Willie Monroe Jr.

Injuries and postponements have restricted Saunders to just two performances since he out-pointed Ireland's Andy Lee to become world champion two years' ago.

"Danny Jacobs fighting Bill, that's [Warren's rival British promoter Eddie] Hearn banging the drum, we know what that's about," Warren added.

Bill wants money fights but Danny Jacobs' last fight didn't draw 2,000 punters, they had to give tickets away, in his own back yard.
