    That's just one excuse that has been taken from him when he gets destroyed, he will have an assortment of others to use though don't you worry

    I hope Saunders learns from the Golovkin results and brings his most aggressive game, going for the stoppage. He has the hand speed to land more than Smith and Golovkin. He has shown good power against Lee and Lemieux. He has the chin to take Canelo's shots. And he can turn on the attack when needed. If he goes for it, he can hurt Canelo and then who knows. But otherwise the writing is on the wall.

    It will be interesting to see what he says in the lead up, that might tell us what to expect. If he admits that he basically can't win on the cards, we may be in with a chance. Because when Smith + coach claimed they believed the judges would do the right thing and otherwise 'the world would see', it was not only delusional, it suggested they were not prepared to put it on the line for the win and would still just try to win rounds. That was reflected in the way Smith fought. He clearly didn't come to destroy Canelo.

    Here's the problem, my scorecard isn't the one that counts. And you seem a lot more concerned with mine, than the corrupt official judges.

    could see BJS beating canelo up then getting robbed by the judges. It would be canelos version of mayweather vs castillo 1.

    I have respect for Saunders’ talents, but he’s never fought anyone close to Canelo’s level, nor as versatile. Right now I think Canelo stops him mid rounds.

    If BJS has even half a peanut for a brain he will start preparing NOW

    Here's the chance for your guy to shine bro. You've been high on him in the past and I really hope he doesn't do anything to **** it up before the fight happens. The cards are stacked against him, literally so he better make it a clean sweep. Saul is no slouch though either. He has gotten better every fight.

    Official result will be Canelo UD. Canelo always gets the judges' favor. You simply cannot beat Canelo on the cards unless it's a flat-out schooling every single round, a la Mayweather, and even then, it resulted in a MD.

    As for the actual result... Well, it would depend on which version of Saunders shows up. Unfortunately, I imagine Saunders will just phone it in because he knows the game is rigged. So, I'm going with Canelo genuinely winning against a version of Saunders who came to lose and leave with a paycheck.

    Saunders has the skill, but not the motivation.

    Billy has a superb boxing brain and is such a talented fighter but his career has been so wasteful of late.

    He's look sub bar against opposition, which granted he would have struggled to "get up" for, but that's no good going into a fight with Canelo especially up at 168.

    Therefore I just can't see anything but a Canelo win especially in the states.

    I imagine a boring affair with BJS running a 12 rd marathon to pick up a career-high payday and a deserves L

    dumbass.. How is this an excuse? BJS is a clearly a different fighter at 160 than at 168. Do you actually watch boxing and understand what goes on in a ring? Or do you just comment on stuff you have no clue on
