Mike Tyson gives his damning prediction for Billy Joe Saunders vs Canelo Alvarez

Mike Tyson is giving Billy Joe Saunders zero chance of beating Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.

WBO super-middleweight champion Saunders meets WBA and WBC king Canelo in a huge unification clash in Texas on Saturday.

While the Briton is a two-weight world champion and undefeated in 30 professional fights, Canelo, widely regarded as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the sport, is a heavy favourite to walk away with all three belts.

And former heavyweight champion Tyson, who last week revealed he is in talks to fight Lennox Lewis again in September, insists Canelo has already won the fight.

Tyson said on his Hotboxin’ podcast: ‘He’s knocked out right now, he’s knocked out already, I swear, he’s knocked out.’

Canelo has won an incredible 55 of his 58 professional fights, with his only defeat coming against Floyd Mayweather back in 2013, when he was still an emerging star and when the American was operating at the peak of his powers.

Asked recently who would win if both men were fighting in their physical primes, Canelo insisted Mayweather would not be interested in fighting him.

‘He’d have nothing to do with me, Canelo told In-Depth With Graham Bensinger. ‘If we were both at our prime, our best prime, he wouldn’t have anything to do with me. Nothing.’
