This weekend is packed with live sports from start to finish, especially in the various fighting games. After more than a month's delay, a world title bout can give excitement to boxing fans in the US living from across the pond. You can spend Saturday afternoon streaming Saunders vs Isufi exclusively on ESPN +.
Saunders vs Isufi boxing event will be held at Lamex Stadium in England. Live broadcast on ESPN + begins on Saturday, May 18, at 2:30 pm. Østtid.
Billy Joe "Superb" Saunders (27-0) is a former world champion who makes a change in weight class in an attempt to get another title. Saunders held the WBO World Middleweight title which now belongs to Demetrius Andrade, but he never lost Andrade or anyone else. Saunders was scheduled to fight him, but then tested positive for a banned substance. He left that title. Now he can become champion again, because this fight is for the vacant WBO World Super Middleweight title, which was abandoned by Gilberto Ramirez five days ago when he officially became a lightweight, as reported by Dan Rafael from ESPN.com. His promoter, Frank Warren, said that Saunders' super-middleweight move will give him the chance of bigger battles. It's true, but it's more a mistake in broadcasting agreements, where the best middleweight is with DAZN, but Saunders is with ESPN than the warriors themselves.
Shefat Isufi (27-3-2) is far from a gatekeeper opponent for Saunders to roll over to Super Middleweight dominance. Isufi has been a WBO regional champion for years, and has the Inter-Continental title since 201
