British Boxing prospect Billy Joe Saunders takes on Tony Randall on the undercard of Frank Warren’s ‘The Magnificent Seven” boxing card at The Echo Arena in Liverpool.
Saunders, the youngest of Frank Warren’s quartet of Olympians and one he has tipped for greatness, returned after a six-month absence in which he underwent hand surgery to score his seventh straight win.
Hatfield’s Saunders, 21, looked sharp and powerful in stopping Tony Randall in two rounds, flooring him in the first and then landing a finishing left hook in the second.
The bout was stopped after 39 seconds of the round in mid-count with Randall obviously in no position to continue. “It’s been a frustrating time,” said Saunders. “I’ve been itching to get back and now it’s onwards and upwards.”
