Vacant WBO Super Middleweight Title: Saunders Outclasses Isufi

Check out MMA News' coverage of the vacant WBO Super Middleweight Title bout between Billy Joe Saunders and Shefat Isufi.

Today (Sat. May 18, 2019) the vacant WBO Super Middleweight Championship was up for grabs. Billy Joe Saunders took on Shefat Isufi from the Lamex Stadium in Stevenage, England for the vacant strap. Saunders was undefeated in his boxing career with a perfect record of 27-0.

Many believe the Englishman could give Canelo Alvarez a run for his money inside the ring. However, before he could even think of such a match-up, he had to get past Isufi. Isufi is a young German veteran who had a record of 27-3-2, with 20 of his wins coming by way of finish. He attempted to hand Saunders the first loss of his career.
