And speaking on the latest episode of his Hotboxin’ podcast, former heavyweight king Tyson scoffed at Saunders’ chances.

When asked of the Brit’s chances, Tyson responded: “He’s knocked out right now, he’s knocked out already, I swear, he’s knocked out.”

Despite Saunders being the WBO super-middleweight champ and undefeated, he is the heavy underdog taking on the Mexican.

Canelo has lost just one of his 58 fights – that came against the legendary Floyd Mayweather in 2013.

The 30-year-old has gone on to win titles in four different weight classes.

One fellow boxer who won’t be too impressed with Tyson writing off Saunders’ chances is the American’s namesake, Tyson Fury.

The reigning WBC and Lineal heavyweight king has been supporting his good friend Saunders out in Las Vegas.

Fury is confident the WBO 168lb king will hand Canelo his second loss, writing on Instagram: “Billy Joe Saunders is 100% mentally in the right place.

“He knows what he has to do and he will do it, he will rise up [to the to] and claim greatness.

“I was wrote off many times in the past and have always come through.

“WE are cut from the same cloth, same breed of animals.

“Canelo has fought them all but never a Fighting Gypsy, we are a different breed of animal to anything he has come across before.

“#YESHEWILL. World domination with the help of God.”

Fury, meanwhile, is waiting for his undisputed clash against Anthony Joshua to get over the line.

But things seems to have hit a sticking point with the Gypsy King’s US promoter Bob Arum saying the fight is ‘dead in the water’ for this year.
