He wasn't "clearly" beating Canelo, and even if he was officially ahead that's absolutely meaningless after 7 rounds. He was going to lose every round from round 8 onwards even without the punch that cracked his eye socket. Thats because he was tiring and Canelos power was getting to him. Saunders was on his way to getting stopped one way or another from Canelos power. Even if he survived or avoided that eye punch he was going to get absolutely punished the next 5 rounds losing all of them. So GTFO with that Saunders was ahead BS. Just like Wilder vs Ortiz, that doesn't matter from the end result or what was going to happen. If they fought again with a 100% healed eye Saunders would get KTFO some other way. Like from perfectly timed liver shot that leaves Saunders wincing on the floor. Canelo is greater than Saunders and the way Canelo outsmarted Saunders this weekend showed it.
