In my opinion. I know that there is a lot of threads on the matter but I have had enough of some of the negative stuff throughout social media. I say boxing stock because he needs to prove himself out of the ring, it’s never too late. Back to the fight, he’s never a SM for starters. Helps that while Canelo is strong he’s not exactly huge at 168. Anyway, I thought it looked bleak for BJS after the first 2 rounds. Canelo was getting past the jab into range, unloading to the body especially and I thought that BJS needed to win those rounds to have any chance. However BJS took his best shots, made the adjustments and started to win rounds himself. He showed a great chin, looked in decent shape and confused Canelo in spots. I knew it was going to be impossible over there to win on the cards (like it is in the UK!) so that was irrelevant to me. The fight changed on that one shot, it was over when it landed. Saunders to his credit knew something was wrong but got through the round, never off his feet. It was obvious it was an orbital, the dark spot under the eye immediately, which closed without swelling. There was no way it could go on, it wasn’t a quit job, it was the only option. Anyone who says anything different doesn’t have a clue, with all due respect. I was impressed by how good Saunders was. We seen bigger men like Smith not challenge Canelo at all. Saunders won rounds, boxed well but walked into one. It happens. Let’s not forget who he was in against, P4P #1 and a dangerous man. I think it’s a wasted career because I can only imagine what he could have achieved at 160 and maybe initially at 154, if he lived the life. But for me he can hold his head up proud. I think it was a great performance for the 8 rounds he was in there.
