Frank Warren releases statement on Billy Joe Saunders vs Shefat Isufi

"Queensberry Promotions are pleased to confirm that Billy Joe Saunders’ next fight will be against Shefat Isufi at Super Middleweight live on BT Sport.

With the widely reported changes in Billy Joe Saunders’ training situation and the current status of the WBO World Super Middleweight Title, this fight will not take place on April 13th at the SSE Arena, Wembley as was previously announced. The fight will be moved to a new date in May at a venue to be confirmed at a later date.

There will be an announcement on an exciting new London show for April featuring some of our best up and coming local talent this week and this will be followed up next with details on where and when Saunders v Isufi takes place."

Hatfield's former WBO middleweight king is aiming to become a two-weight world champion in his 28th fight against the Munich-based Serbian, who has won titles at cuiserweight in his career. Saunders and promoter Frank Warren then have plans for a big domestic fight with either former victim Chris Eubank Jr or super-middleweight No.1 Callum Smith.
