    And body, and head. Which hurt BJS, which is why he capitulated.

    This fight was EVEN on my scorecard after 8 so BJS had Canelo scratching his head IMO

    BJS's body language changed completely after he got tagged in the 8th.

    Personally, I think he was probably going to fade anyway, but I won't fault him or his corner for calling it a night after his eye closed. Some fighters have gone on to win with one working eye, but it's a severe enough injury that a retirement is warranted.

    Saunders didnt do bad but got outclassed. His powerful body shots beat Billy Joes pitty patting all day long. Billy Joe won one round clearly, maybe 2 other rounds were kinda close, but Canelo was beating him down and the stoppage was inevitable.

    If he wanted a rematch he should have started with finishing the first match.

    With this win Canelo breaks Mayweather and Holyfield's record of most world titles won with 12.
