Billy Joe Saunders-Shefat Isufi on May 18 (VIDEO)

Former WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (27-0-0) will face Shefat Isufi (27-3-2) on 18th of May at Stevenage FC’s Lamex Stadium and the two will fight for the interim WBO super-middleweight title.

Initially, the fight was scheduled for April 13, but for the WBO World super-middleweight title, but the current champion Gilberto Ramirez came out and denied having ever vacated the title.

All that means, that whoever claims the interim belt will be Ramirez mandatory challenger later in 2019.

Here’s what the Brit had to say:

“It is what it is and no problem,” he said, “I shall fight this #1 ranked opponent and I will be taking his spot and then I will fight Ramirez after. Let’s get that fight going on.

“If he moves up I would become world champion, but I don’t want to win it that way because I want to beat the champion. It is all good vibes from me, I am willing to fight anybody in the super-middleweight or middleweight category and put on a masterful display.”
