The pair clashed in a heated bout back in 2014 and that is just one of a numbero f marquee offerings available to the Hatfield man if he defeats Shefat Isufi for the WBO super middleweight world title.

Speaking before the weekend Saunders said: “At middleweight I tried everything to make the big fights happen after my David Lemieux performance and we chased the Canelo and Golovkin fights.

“So this is about giving myself another option instead of looking in that one room.

“I’m going to come back bigger and better than ever and the super middleweight world title is the way forward. There is a big fight at the weekend and I would love the winner, while you’ve also got Callum Smith.

“If Canelo and Golovkin don’t want it, maybe I can get a big one in the UK.”
