VIDEO: FACE OFF – Part 1: Andy Lee & Billy Joe Saunders

The build-up has begun to Andy Lee and Billy Joe Saunders’s long-awaited WBO title showdown. The pair face off in their twice-postponed middleweight title fight on November 19th in the Manchester Arena.

In the vein of big U.S. fights, Boxnation have released the first in a series of face-off videos.

Moderated by Steve Bunce, it was a largely respectful affair, with Lee famed for being one of boxing’s biggest gentlemen, although expect this to change the closer it gets to fight night.

Andy Lee-Billy Joe Saunders will be shown exclusively live on Boxnation TV (Sky channel 437) and tickets are on sale now.
