North East’s unbeaten professional boxer, Bradley Saunders has undergone career changing surgery.
After suffering for a long time, the decision to operate came after injuring the hand in the 5th round of last fight against Peter McDonagh.
“I Got it done 19th December, they took bone from my hip. I’ve always had problems with it and triggered it in the 5th round of my last fight against Peter McDonagh.”
Saunders showcased his class in front of millions by beating highly ranked McDonagh in an excellent display of boxing skills over 8 rounds. The fight received huge TV ratings and was sandwiched between heavyweight David Price’s second round destruction of Matt Skelton.

Recovery is going smoothly so far and the eager light welterweight is desperate to get back into training.
“I’ve only got 1 more week and pins are due out so I’ll be back training. The hand feels good now and I can’t wait to be back.”
The hospital has an excellent record performing this type of operation and the unbeaten prospect is confident of a strong return to the ring.
“Had it done by Mike Hayton of Manchester who is one of the best, if not ‘the’ best so I’ve got full faith in him.”
Saunders last fight against Peter McDonagh

The majority of Saunders’ fights have been held at welterweight but the star from Sedgefield is keen to get back to his natural fighting weight and in the ring again.
“I think I’ll be back out in May at light welter and I can’t wait.”
