After two attempts at getting the Billy Joe Saunders v Andy Lee fight on, with both being postponed, we now have a new date for the WBO middleweight title contest.

The fight will be staged at the Manchester Arena, England, on December 19th.

The original two dates were cancelled due to Lee picking up an illness preventing him fighting and the second time around Saunders picking up an injury in the build up to the contest.

The champion, Lee, will enter the ring with a record that reads 34-2-1 with 24 wins coming by way of the big knockout whilst Saunders will make the ring walk with a record that reads 22-0 with 12 wins coming by knockout.

Here at Vital Boxing we?ve got our fingers crossed that it?ll be third time lucky for this bout taking place.

Tickets go on sale on October 16th.
