    It was headed to be a fight were biased people could give BJS basically all rounds, even when he just shoe shined, then claim robbery. They got shut down.

    I was counting every landed punch of every round, in the last 4 rounds it was around 8 landed punches by Saunders for 1 powershot of Canelo, I'd take 8 light puncher over 1 power shot that doesn't faze you.

    There’s not a chance Canelo will rematch him. Yet another slick Southpaw after Lara and Canelo was getting outboxed for large portions of the fight

    He quit because he saw his bottom. He knew he was going to get his wish of visiting the grave and his chickenheart broke. Disgrace.

    BJS 2.0 was doing well. He's never fought on a stage of this magnitude before and he took a few rounds to relax and get into his groove. Clenelo is much stronger and more powerful at this weight and I'm assuming the eye damage came from a hook. Shame it ended like that though as he was causing Clen a lot of problems when he started to relax and found his rhythm

    Being a traveler means you hit the road at a moments notice , Saunders knew he was done .
