    If billy saunders wanted to continue.....he would have continued...his facial expression said it all.....he wanted to quit and now we're being gaslighted by this disingenious garbage. Saunders quitting was predicted by a fair few of us who said the canelo fight would expose him

    Yeah. No. He gave zero protest or any urgency to continue. He quit He had a reason to. But he quit.

    Hes supppsed to be a traveller used to an upbringing of bare knuckle fighting where they regularly fight through black eyes and facial damage....sugar ray leonard vs hearns 1...or.in the the 5th round of the 2nd barkley fight tommy hearns whole face was rearranged by 1 punch that broke his nose swelled his eyes up so bad he looked like a post plastic surgery barry manilow...but he fought furiously for 7 rounds to a hair thin split loss....nigel benn....eubanks jnr fights for his life...saunders is a quit job.....if he'd done a dubois ie quitting on one knee mid ring after fighting hard for a round....id say he was a warrior who stopped to fight another day

    Everybody in this world knows what "I cant see" means in a boxing ring.

    And in other worlds they know it too.

    Now, you can tell the story as you want to, maybe anyone without freaking idea about boxing will buy it.

    EDIT: And dont get me wrong, I've nothing against quitting. When it's the right choice, not quitting is a mistake. If the right choice is to quit, then it must be done, only an idiot would not do it.

    This whole, knackers in a wheelbarrow, chest beating stuff over, "Quitting", is actually pretty concerning.
    Are there really people out there who want to see another Johnny Owen ?
    If a lad's had enough then pull him out.
    This is just the moronic Saunders trying to spin some story about his super human courage off the back of him slating Daniel Dubois.

    Well this is about Saunders talking all that crap and quitting like a little girl in the corner, when Canelo quits which it will never happen than come again, NO MAS!!

    The trainers both handled this in stupid fashion.

    Tibbs shouldn't have said, 'He wasn't giving me the reaction I wanted'. If you saw his face was caved in, you should have made the decision and then told the reporters afterwards that you were never letting him fight on after seeing the massive structural damage. Don't even mention what BJS did or didn't do.

    As for you, Davison, don't go fabricating what happened to damage control Tibbs' comments where he basically threw BJS under the bus. Just makes it worse. Better off focusing on the injury and explain that the corner was not going to let it continue. Also, Michelle Phelps actively tried to get Tibbs to say BJS quit in an interview, despite being a 'friend' of Billy, what an absolute skank-snake.

    The scary thing is, though, I'm not sure that corner even knew how bad the damage was. They shouldn't have even been leaving it to BJS to make any kind of decision. Get a doctor to check his malformed face and call it off.

    People for the most part understand. It's just fans rubbing it in because most posters were rooting for Saunders. Saunders talked a lot of crap saying he would die in the ring just to beat Canelo and talked crap about other fighters for quiting with injuries like Dubois. Now we get threads like this where fans are trying to say Saunders wanted to continue which we all know isn't true.

    Overall it was the smart thing to do because even if Saunders managed a victory, losing your eye sight is forever. He is still not out of the woods so who knows if he will get another chance to box.

    Have any of you've seen Mark Tibbs today? He put out a video explaining a few things.

    Those inhumane 15 rounds outdoors world title fights in midday Vegas heat pitting British cells like Owen,Barry McGuigan and Colin Jones versus local fighters were inhuman

    A bunch of immediate interviews with Tibbs have been taken down by the likes of IFL. I remember one of them where Tibbs says that he (Tibbs) wanted to see how the next round went, but BJS said he couldn’t see.

    What we’re seeing now is damage control.
