With his left eye closed almost over Billie Joe Saunders After losing from KO to Say Canelo Alvarez This Saturday at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, the Mexican won the Unified Middleweight Super-Heavyweight title.
Both fighters fought evenly until he punished Britain’s “Canelo” harshly in the eighth round, and unexpectedly, his coach warned he would not return to the ring to the crowd’s rejoicing. Then it could be seen that the British ended up seriously injured in the eye.
“I knew the fight would start around the eighth round. But it wasn’t as difficult as I expected, I realized my preparations were fine and I am getting better every day,” said Canelo. He said, “I knew this was going to happen.” He said, “I knew that he would not come out because I had broken his cheekbones.”
The referees also gave Mexico a win with a score of 77-75, 78-74, and 78-74.
In his third fight in less than six months, Alvarez was awarded the World Boxing Organization (WBO) super middleweight title, which Saunders held, adding it to the World Boxing Council (WBC) and the World Boxing Federation (WBA).
Only the Mexican has to win the International Boxing Federation (IBF) title, which is owned by the American Caleb Factory. That’s the plan, go belt. Canelo threaten.
