    BJS couldn't see? See? His freaking eye was not even close to closed! Not even close!

    Actually, his eye was only slightly swollen.

    Daniel freaking Dubois fought with a fully CLOSED eyes for a good few rounds.

    This clown, literally quit at the first sign of eye area bruising.

    I was jumping with joy watching BJS do well, and knowing that he is 5 rounds 3 up, then he QUIT.

    Imo Canelo showed himself to be a limited fighter. Doesn't deserve to be p4p 1, Crawford and Inoue are better.

    DAZN just said the same.

    I had it even, might have been 5-3 for BJS if not for the sudden change after Canelo busted his eye. I have trouble seeing 6-2, 5-3 for Canelo is a stretch.

    People are surprised the judges were going to favour Canelo in close rounds?

    LOL.

    Man. I want a rematch.
    They were really evenly matched. Even if Canelo was breaking him down, it doesn´t mean that he could have finished the job had it not been for the eye.

    But then you have those BS scorecards...
    Leaves a real bitter taste in my mouth.

    To be fair, I thought there were only 3 clear round leading to the 8th, so not completely terrible cards. One judge had it the same as me after 8.

    What were the judges cards? Clean sweep by Ginger Snaps?

    Canelo was too much for Saunders

    Yeah, two had him 4 up after 8, the other 2 up.


    BJS had no chance, that just confirms it.

    I'm OK'ish having it 5-3 Canelo after 8, I don't agree but it's close.

    But 6-2, GTFO.
