When Frank Warren announced that he would not be signing a new contract with Bradley Saunders, it didn?t take a genius to guess where he?d end up.

Commons sense suggested that it?d probably be Matchroom Promotions and that has indeed been proven to be the case with a deal being announced today.

Speaking about the hook-up, Saunders has remarked,

?I am thrilled to be joining Eddie Hearn and fighting on Sky Sports.?

?I had plenty of options and I definitely chose the best one for me, it’s a new chapter and I am raring to go.

?I am looking for big things. I don’t want anything less than being a World champion. I played at the game in the amateurs but it is serious now. I want to bring big things to the North East.?

It?s the kind of talk we?d expect when a fighter switches camps.

But what does the Hearn camp have in mind for Saunders?

?I am delighted to welcome Bradley to the team.?

?Bradley has made a fantastic start to his professional career and he is capable of becoming a superstar in the North East.?

?We managed to squeeze him onto the huge Merseyside bill on November 22 and we will be looking to box him again in late January/early February before he headlines in Newcastle in early April.?

?Bradley has become one of the hottest prospects in the sport and I am so excited about delivering for him and the passionate fans in the North East.?

Will it be a marriage made in heaven?

I guess only time will tell!
