Saunders has defended his title three times, most recently against David Lemieux in Canada in December.
"I felt my hand go during a session this week and sought medical advice immediately," he said.
"Unfortunately, I've been told that I can't punch anything for four weeks so we've been left with no choice but to withdraw from the date.
"My trainer Dominic Ingle will make sure I'm fit and prepared to put on another show on June 23rd."
