Billy Joe Saunders returns to the ring to defend the WBO super middleweight title against Martin Murray today at 2 pm ET streaming live on DAZN and airing on Sky Sports in the UK, and Bad Left Hook will be here with fight-by-fight results updates, as well as live discussion in the comments section below.
Saunders, 31, will be making the second defense of the belt he won in May 2019, last fighting in Nov. 2019 when he stopped Marcelo Coceres in a fight that turned out to be much tougher than expected. Murray, 38, is getting a fifth and likely final shot at winning a world title, having had some terribly tough breaks in his previous four opportunities.
