Saul “Canelo” Alvarez retained his World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association titles and seized the World Boxing Organisation belt after beating Billy Joe Saunders via TKO.
Alvarez won by technical knockout after Saunders’ corner called a halt in front of 73,000-plus fans at AT&T Stadium. Saunders’ right eye had swollen shut, and the bout was called off with Saunders still on the stool.
Canelo said, “I think I broke his cheek. The truth is I knew it. I guessed in the corner and told my trainer Eddie Reynoso ‘I broke his cheek’.”
Alvarez stopped Billy Joe Saunders in eight rounds on Saturday to unify three super-middleweight titles. He won the fight in front of the largest US crowd in history. Saunders went right to the hospital.
Saunders argued and won his case to increase the size of the ring from 20 feet to 22 feet. But no amount of extra space was going to allow him to escape Alvarez’s devastating punching power.
The victory serves as another step in Alvarez’s quest to dominate the 168-pound division. Now he eyes Caleb Plant, the other major champion in the 168-pound division.
Alvarez was fighting for the third time in six months so boxing fans know he likes to stay busy in the ring and now he wants to fight Plant as soon as possible. Hinting towards his next fight with Caleb, Canelo said, “I am coming man, I am coming, my friend.”
We can’t wait to watch the next fighter Canelo takes on.
