Super middleweight world titlist Billy Joe Saunders has signed with Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, a source with knowledge of the deal told ESPN on Sunday. Saunders earlier this month parted ways with career-long promoter Frank Warren, who guided him to middleweight and super middleweight world titles. Now Saunders (28-0, 13 KOs), 29, of England, will be promoted by Hearn, who has a major fight he can make in the division, a unification bout between Saunders and unbeaten Callum Smith. Hearn on Sunday announced that he would hold a news conference on Tuesday in London to “reveal a major new signing.”
