Billy Joe Saunders wants to fight Gennady Golovkin in the UK. The WBO middleweight world champion has been offered a fight against the fearsome Kazakh, but has insisted he will only accept the bout on his terms.

Although Saunders, 26, is happy to fight Golovkin, he wants the initial offer to be amended before he agrees to do so.

"Golovkin's team have made me an offer, but we can't take it seriously at the moment and it doesn't make much sense. It's not just about more money, but about where it will take place and other factors," said Saunders, according to World Boxing News.

"I'm not just going to go over to America to fight him, let him come to the UK and let me have something my way. Even if they don't want to offer the money that we asked for, we can negotiate that, but come to the UK.

"This fight isn't all about [Golovkin] and it needs to work for both sides and Frank Warren is doing his utmost to try to get some things my way. It's a hard fight as it is and I'm going into it as a big underdog, so at least let us have some things on our terms."

If the Golovkin fight does not come to fruition, Saunders revealed he would also be willing to face either Puerto Rican star Miguel Cotto or Mexico's Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.

"I've always said I will face anyone and I wouldn't take the [Golovkin] fight if I didn't think I could win. Look at Klitschko vs Fury, everyone ripped Fury saying he would get knocked out and then he went and won. No man on this earth is invincible and I've seen things in Golovkin that I could exploit. I would give it my all to get that victory," he said.

"By the end of this month if this fight isn't made, it won't happen in April. If I wasn't champion, I would have taken the fight without hesitation. But I'm not a challenger and I have other options to go and make money elsewhere. I want to be fighting four times a year so need to start sorting things.

"Whoever my team put in front of me I will fight. I haven't looked at anyone else yet because of the Golovkin offer but there are plenty of options out there for me. I would love to fight Canelo or Cotto, and those fights can easily be made.

"Members of my team are well connected with Oscar De La Hoya so the Canelo fight can happen with ease. I would probably make more money from it too."
