EBU calls for Billy Joe Saunders and Emanuele Blandamura to contest for the vacant European middleweight title
By Ronan Smith
Although the fight is yet to be made official, Saunders, from Hatfield, took to Twitter to reveal that it was looking promising and that details were actively being worked on to finalise the fight.
There have been some suggestions over the prior couple of days on Twitter from Saunders that he was soon due for a big fight and claiming the European crown would firmly see him a step closer towards mixing it up with the likes of domestic middleweight rulers Murray, Macklin and Lee.
The current reigning British and Commonwealth Middleweight title holder was a standout amateur who qualified for the Beijing Olympics in 2008. He is undefeated in 19 professional contests and boasts a knock-out ratio of over 52% but is coming off the back of a close unanimous decision against Londoner John Ryder in September of last year.
Blandamura, by contrast, stayed active around Christmas and New Years, fighting twice since his opponent’s September bout. The number one Italian middleweight took a points-win over 6 rounds in November and won a split decision over 12 rounds toward the end of January. He is undefeated in 22 contests with most coming by way of points; he has only 5 knock outs to his record, equating to a percentage of a little less than 23%.
As well as being the fresher of the two, Saunders is also the younger by ten years, but in terms of the number of professional fights they are on equal ground. It is however only speculation for now when the fight would take place and so Saunders may choose to make a defense of his two titles beforehand as a tune-up bout.
