Saunders’ Dallas dust-up with the hard-hitting Mexican is the biggest fight of his 12-year-long career.

And the WBO 168lb champ would happily walk away from his entire family to be crowned unified super-middleweight champion.

Saunders, 31, told The Daily Telegraph: “This means everything to me, everything.

“Absolutely everything. More than money, more than fame, more than anything. I want to win this so bad.

“If it means I say goodbye to my kids, and I never see them again, I can leave this earth happy knowing I have won.

“It means that much to me. As us gypsies say, ‘We’re not here to take part, we’re here to take over.’”

Saunders is well aware of the size of the task on his hands but is unfazed by the daunting prospect that is Canelo,

He added: “I don’t give a s**t about Canelo Alvarez, not two s***s.

“For me in my own brain, I’ve planned this out in my own head and I’ve been dreaming this since I was a little boy fighting in the front room.

“I’ve visualised this day coming. People say I haven’t lived the life, I ain’t done it right but I’m here.

“Two-weight world champion, two-time world champion, 30 fights, 30 wins, won every single title on the way. I’m here for a reason, 100 per cent.”

Billy Joe Saunders is confident of shocking the world and beating Canelo next weekend

He said: “This fight is for all the marbles. This one we go country for country, countrymen for countrymen.

“I know when I go to Texas I’ll have 70,000 Mexicans screaming. But the Gypsies are coming out in force.

“The English, the Irish, the Scots – you name it they will be there. I’ll be flying that Gypsy flag very high for every one of them.

“I’m not just doing this for me and my family, I’m doing it for them as well.

“Victory will mean one of the biggest upsets in boxing history, I believe. Certainly in the last 20 years.

“He’s beaten six Brits already. Unlucky number seven for him, lucky number seven for me. I believe this is meant to be.”
