    Exactly this. Canelo saw that punch all night.

    Yep, Saunders had no answers when the going got tough. He’s never been a favourite of mine but my god he is a great fighter.

    Towel on his head, crying because he knows he quit.

    He wasn't having any of "BJS quit" immediately after and was pointing to the eye, said it could be a broken orbital.

    Wasn't having any of it. He was really sticking up for BJS.




    RJJ just said he had Canelo up 1 or 2 rounds.

    I am a Canelo fan(when he fights) and I thought the fight was going Saunders´ way.
    Those two cards were waaay to wide.

    Regardless this was a good performance by Canelo. Managed to overcome a tactical adversity and stop an undefeated prime fighter.

    No, no, no, it looks alomost certain to be a fractured orbital bone.

    That's not a quit job.

    Well , I don't really know what to make of any of what I've just watched LOL.. Canelo got pretty schooled by a fairly inactive euro level guy & then the guy just stops fighting LOL.. that shot at the end was bad but he walked back to his corner fine… must be summat we can't see.. what is clear is that Canelo Alvarez is jacked to the ****ing gills & would get styled on by a bigger & equally skilled as BJS (if not more so) Calzaghe & peak Ward if MW Saunders is doing that to him at 168.. no way a guy that small has physicality & hands as NATURALLY heavy as that… no fkin way.. you're watching Lance Armstrong all over again.. Billy u wrote a check your body couldn't cash lad & Canelo you're a juiced up overrated mong :lol:

    Isn’t it funny how most of the time the best fighters over the course of their careers land the lucky punches?

    He hasn't got the heart to compete. Needs to quit and stop bringing shame to British Boxing. He had a full camp and a 22ft ring. Everything was stacked in his favour and he couldn't keep his mentality together.
