Billy Joe Saunders is set to clash with David Lemieux in Canada in less than a month's time, and the Brit looks to be in the best shape of his life ahead of his trip to the Great White North.
Saunders' body transformation has been so emphatic this year, that former opponent Willy Monroe Jr suggested that the Englishman was breaking doping regulations.
However, Saunders responded to Monroe Jr saying it was all down to his commitment to getting a better physique.
BJS said: "The way people are: ‘your body can’t change like that’, your body can’t do this, your body can’t do that.
"But if you’re locked away for 13 weeks religiously eating, drinking certain amounts a day, supplements, training three times a day, then if you’re not in that shape then obviously you’re not sticking to it, you’ve not been doing it.
"The problem with me is I’ve always trained hard but I’ve always been ‘a little bit of pizza,’ bang I’ll eat that. It’s always been that way with me. ‘I’m mature. I’ve never been in this shape. It’s all part of learning, making mistakes, learning from them and I’ve learned from them. I’m in good shape now, I’m planning on keeping it."
Saunders went from an out of shape man struggling for fitness, to a quite literally a lean, mean, fighting machine.
You can see his ridiculous transformation in the tweet provided below.
One has to admire the commitment it takes for someone to do that.
Saunders is causing waves in the boxing scene right now, and he seems to be just reaching his peak when it comes to physical fitness.
Billy Joe Saunders goes up against David Lemieux on December 16 in Canada after the 28-year-old agreed to fight the Canadian in his home country.
This will be Saunders' third defence of his WBO middleweight title. An exciting fight, for an exciting young boxer.
