In my humble opinion, the best performance on the Newcastle show, last Saturday, came from the light-welterweight Bradley Saunders.

Saunders, in what appeared to be a tough fight on paper, stopped the Finnish fighter Ville Piispanen, in 81 seconds, to win the WBO inter-continental title.

Buoyed by his success the 28 year-old has now won all 10 fights since turning professional and is setting his sights high for 2015.

Speaking to his local media, Saunders has remarked,

‘If it all runs well then this time next year I hope to be knocking on the door.?

‘I want to get some big names, I’m training really hard in the gym.’

‘It means the world, it’s what I’m in it for.?

‘I believe I can be number one, that’s what I’m in the sport to be. If I didn’t think I could do it then I wouldn’t go through all the diets and training?.

‘We’re on the way up now and the move now, I’ve got to keep moving forward.’

Before his demolition of Ville Piispanen, it had been suggested that several fighters were running scared of facing Saunders, after the performance he put up on Saturday night, perhaps I can see why!
