BILLY Joe Saunders is only hours away from making a welcome return to the ring as he fights Tony Randell tonight (Saturday) at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.

Saunders’ bout is part of a real feast of action with Frank Warren masterminding a fantastic night of boxing up in the north west.

The ‘Magnificent Seven’ features, amongst others, Billy Joe’s fellow Olympian James DeGale who will battle Liverpool fighter Paul Smith for the British Super Middleweight title.

Rising star Kell Brook takes on Philip Kotey for the Intercontinental welterweight championship, and Welsh pugilist Nathan Cleverly will do battle against Nadjib Mohammedi for the interim WBO light-heavyweight title.

On the same night, Amir Khan will defend his WBA light-welterweight title against dangerous Argentinian Marcos Maidana in Las Vegas, America.

Saunders has not fought since damaging his hand in a points win against Andy Butlin at Upton Park, the home of West Ham United Football Club, and brings to the ring a professional record of six wins in six, with three coming by TKO.
