    Yes. I've gotten green screen and weird letter /number combinations popping up.

    anti climactic finish. billy had a few decent rounds, looked to be getting momentum, then Canelo took it away.

    BJS reacted very strongly to that eye injury. Completely changed his behavior and body language.

    Not sure it's actually a serious injury, but it's certainly serious to Saunders.

    Suspect BJS eye socket may be broke?
    I don’t think he could open it?
    Canelo really hurt him in the 8th

    They didn't flush the eye out, nothing, just waived it off. His health though.

    It was the right uppercut that Canelo was trying to land from the first round that ended it.

    Caught BJS flush and smashed his eye.

    I would have expected BJS to fight on

    To be fair BJS could have lasted the distance if he fought the same way.

    No slickness and no killer instinct. Canelo KO's plant.

    The same Eye that his trained covered with a can after he told the reporter his breath smelled bad. Said "We don't condone this behaviour". The fitness trainer was a snake in the grass. You can't make it up!
