    Only in boxing will you see someone get stopped brutally and still have people moaning and/or not respecting the fighter , so much bitterness.

    Shame ending, BJS was doing brilliantly, only clear rounds i had to canelo were 2-3 and 8, Canelo was flat footed, frustrated and couldn't land anything clean, once Saunders got in his groove he was slick and neat. A rematch would be good provided clear evidence is presented that Saunders did get a serious eye injury. He wasn't fighting like he was on jelly legs after that shot but literally like he could only see from one eye, so im gonna give him the benefit of the doubt. In all happy canelo won cause I had money on him, but Saunders did show it doesn't just take a talent like GGG or Floyd to beat canelo

    The same people who said Dubois quit will defend BJS. Both are quitters.

    Saunders 5-3. Saunders was doing very well up until the 8th round, he was out boxing Canelo who looked quite confused. It's a shame that shot took out his eye because Billy was coming on strong. After the seventh I was convinced Billy had this but that ****ing eye man

    ****

    **** the judges and **** the dumbasses on here who don't know how to score for ****

    Sanders looks like he is in pain about ready to get in the ambulance. Not sure he comes back from this.

    I thought Saunders was 5-3 up after 8 tbh.

    But I was routing for him so could have been a bit fo a biased take on it.

    But he looked comfortable and in control until that 8th round imo.

    I hear you lose your Gypsy magic once you move out of your tent or caravan. Tyson Fury seems to be the exception.

    Awk, I shouldn't joke about such things. Serious damage done to BJS face. All the best to him.

    Canelo still rules the world.

    It's 100% a quit job. The fact is that he quit. Justified quitting, but still quitting. It's just calling it how it is. It will even go in the record as that.

    Canelo was bending him every time he touched that body. Right from the first round. Right there I knew the fight wasn't going to last 12 rounds. All that mocking and closing Sanders did are typical of a man getting hurt.
