    And one of the least likeable people in the sport. He had to be an effective boxer to get anywhere but not an entertaining one.

    BJS is / was an incredibly skilled boxer, but he sells no tickets and draws no viewers.

    How many people will buy a DAZN subscription to see Billy Joe Saunders make a comeback ?

    Billy Joe worked his career plan to perfection - avoid Golovkin, and string along his career to cash out with a Canelo payday. he made one misstep with the nasal spray, but Uncle Frank soon gifted him another title in a cold stadium in Stevenage.

    At this point I hope not - he's missed the chance to reach the heights he could have reached. I try not to be a "Karen" in terms of judging the behaviour of others but he's also made it very very hard to support him the amount of bullying he's been caught doing on camera

    It was obvious that the loss to Canelo would lead to retirement.

    He fell out of love with the sport a long time ago and was just doing it for money. Canelo showed that you don’t play at boxing and was a wake up call for him to get out whilst he still has his senses about him.

    He won’t be back

    Why did BJS feel the need to leak that small clip from his private phone call with Ben Shalom where he talks about Sky?

    Class A idiot.

    You gotta be real careful what you say to BJS. He's so unprofessional, he'll leak it to the whole world. Wouldn't trust him at all.

    Had he have fought a guy like Canelo at age 27-28, I think he likely could have bounced back. I don't know a great deal about broken orbitals, but I've seen a few. I think it was a bit of cop-out that he didn't return to the ring and challenge himself. He was always content being a big fish in a small pond.

    Digging out Dubois for quitting and then quitting on his stool with the same injury was his career defining moment.

    You know how boxing has a habit of making sht human beings, rich. Billy Joe is a classic example of that. I hope he never gets a big fight ever again.

    I would tbh, probably because I’m a brit and have found some of his clowning around antics funny, some of the build up to the Eubank Canelo Monroe fights were great and even the ones that never took place in the end like Andrade and that Georgian midget he kept called Danny Devito lol.

    I'd only want to see him get knocked out or humiliated like quitting on his stool. (again). Loudmouth bully who bored the public in the ring and was a dickhead out of it.

    he smacked a cousin of mine at a site when off his tits, man is a bully. He has two families on the go and it's ruining his life. He has a crippling coke problem. He is a cancer.
