Remember Daniel Dubois getting pelters on here and on all social media for quitting with an eye that looked much worse than that

Saunders very much in that fight at the time of the stoppage. I had him 4-3 up, donít know how 2 judges had Canelo 4 rounds clear. Hope Billy is ok.

I had Canelo 79-74 up but scored the first round even so could easily see 78-74

Thought Billy Joe did really well, and fuck fighting Canelo if you can't see where that left hand is coming from. Wouldn't mind seeing a rematch but it won't happen.

I know he's a bellend but he did more than Callum against Canelo that's for sure, not really intimidated by him whereas Callum shrank.

I had Canelo up by a couple, if you gave BJS all the close rounds the you could have had him one up.

I don't like to accuse fighters of quitting, but after what he said about Dubois... he quit.

Thought it was closer than 4 rounds for sure, that little stretch of 3 rounds Canelo wasn't doing enough and Saunders was boxing well. Shame it ended like that.

So after talking shit about Dubois quitting, he quits himself. Dickhead hypocrite. Glad Canelo put a hurt on him.

Karma has struck that is why if you are an active boxer you keep your mouth shut.

Dubios didnt quit like keyboard warriors say its a thing casuals trot out.

Dubios was right to save himself and so is BJS/Tibbs.

I thought Canelo would win on points as BJS is abit lazy and he not fight at a tempo where he could win the 9-10 rounds he would need to get a decision.

Its about levels as well BJS hasnt really beaten anyone in top 5 in the world he has now and this is the result.

I suppose we will get Eubank Jnr bigging himself up next.

I know based on his previous comments he deserves any digs he gets about quitting, but thereís a difference with being hurt or having an injury and damage to your eye that affects your vision. If he continued he would have had no chance of winning, and risked permanent damage to his eye etc.

I thought he did really well, it would have been interesting to see it go another 3 - 4 rounds had he not suffered the damage to his eye. Canelo was getting really frustrated

I just want him to live by the same standards he holds of others. How quiet the boxing community has been because the white fighter quit when his eye was a mess compared to how loud they were when the black fight quit because his eye was a mess has been stark. I've got no problem with him not continuing, just like I didn't with Dubois and defended him at the time, but he's a fucking hypocrite for doing what he did last night.

All boxers are hypocrites, its part of the deal to increase attention and sell tickets. When they say theyll never quit and will fight till the death, they probably dont actually mean it. Just part of the act.

I think its more tribal than that. Matchroom v Queensbury.

Tony Bellew who defo watched the fight has not said a word. Nor has Whyte, nor has Liam Smith. All stuck the boot in re Dubois

Hearn was very dismissive of Dubois but suddenly obtained a medical degree overnight to say that Saunders broke his orbital.

You would have to be an imbecile to mean it in fairness. There are some boxers who are utterly mental and will keep going until they are stretchered out. Lots of boxers do need saving from themselves but few will actually 'fight to the death' and nor should they!

Anyway, saying Dubois 'quit' is nonsense and saying Saunders 'quit' is equally nonsense. I personally don't expect boxers to fight on to the point where they fuck up their career and/or lives. They risk enough by stepping into the ring.

Canelo is a druggy twat but no one up to and probably including 175 is beating him. Bivol didn't look great the other week for example.

BJS wanted out as soon as that uppercut landed. He throws 1 jab which doesn't land in the remaining 100 seconds left in the round and spent the rest of the round fighting scared. I wouldn't be surprised if he considered corner pull out more warrior than taking a knee, unlucky for him that nobody is making that distinction. It was the right decision to pull out because Canelo would have done unspeakable things to him if that continued. When have you ever seen Canelo try to rile up the crowd like that? BJS pre fight antics annoyed him and he would have hurt him badly if it continued.

Why does Canelo get constantly billed as this when the likes of Whyte, Fury (both), Saunders don't? They have all failed tests

No, but I do like them two hating on each other.

Please understand the BJS only got to round 8 because Canelo wanted him too. Canelo's team said Canelo wants to finish him in round 6,7 or 8. Canelo wanted to seriously damage BJS. He wasn't finishing the fight no matter what.

Haha. Canelo was trying to knock him out from round 1. Saunders did better than I expected, was actually outboxing Canelo at times.
