Canelo Alvarez need to stop running from black fighters like the Charlo Brothers and Andrade. When Canelo Alvarez fought Lara he had problems with Lara quickness. They need to stop protecting Canelo Alvarez. He will not be considered powerful pound fighting white fighters only Mexicans will consider him great that's it. Canelo Alvarez know he's will get his ass whipped by them Charlo Brothers.

Cuando Canelo levantó ambos brazos a solo unos pocos segundos despues de dar el golpe que causó la fractura del pómulo, Canelo con lenguaje corporal anunció así a todo el mundo que habia hecho mucho daño a su oponente. Eso fué evidente.

The glove looks tricky it might of look like he hit him in that exact spot but u can’t see the actual hand so the glove compresses and the actual hand is a lot smaller than the glove. The left side of his glove slipped off his face causing the cut and the actual hit probably caught him full on

To me, watching on TV, it definitely did look serious from the outside. His eye was turning black almost instantly as if blood was coming from behind it (like internal blood) and at certain camera angles it really did look like his cheek was indented as in bone, face itself had an indentation.. so that is REALLY BAD. The thing is, there are way way too many viewers who simply do not know what they're seeing (or not seeing) and they also want to screech down some teenage level shaming on some hated opponent too. Duly noted: Saunders did NOT QUIT and carried out a horrific round taking shots to his broken eye so there's no need to say he quit. *yes indeed, the corner will stop it, yes, if not a doctor will stop it, no, contrary to popular opinion, a fighter cannot go 'Rocky' defying the corner and doctors*

@niduoe stre yes, it was like instant, as he rose up from it - its like it was already obviously red and dark. To my mind something 'internal' had burst. Scary stuff really.

Christ the way, truth, life
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6 (NKJV) Jesus is the only way to heaven. Salvation: Confess and repent of all your sins in prayer Forgive those who have harmed you (this will free you from anger) as Jesus forgave you Believe Jesus died to blot out your sins and that He is your Saviour Believe He rose again 3 days later in the flesh by God's hand Be baptised fully immersed in water and be baptised in the Holy Spirit (if possible) Repent daily By grace you are saved through Faith (belief) Live pure and stop sinning Follow the spiritual laws: Love you neighbour as yourself and love God with all your heart, soul and mind. Believe Jesus is Lord. Do fruitful charitable deeds.

Just a friendly message not related to this video☺️God loves you, no matter who you are, where you’re from or what you’ve done. He’s waiting with open arms for you to accept Him into your lives. Please repent of your sins and ask God for forgiveness. He loves and cares for you. Jesus has already paid the price for all of our sins, you just need to believe in Him that he’s our saviour and begin to live right with God. I love you and hope you have a lovely day. God Bless You☁️🙌

To the one who has ears to hear, let him hear this message Don’t play games with you’re soul Jesus loves you so much as you can see from what’s going on in the world things have changed and you probably wonder at times if things will Ever go back to normal ? the answer to that question is no. God is allowing you to see just how evil this world is and you’ve seen so much that should make you think and ask yourself is God speaking to me ? Is God warning me ? yes he is and God will judge this world but God is patient with you and with all Not wanting any to perish but all to be saved Today and even now is time of salvation make the best decision you can make in this world and give you’re life and you’re heart to Jesus Christ and accept Jesus as you’re Lord and Saviour doing so while understanding this fact that eternity is forever with no end And no such thing as time in eternity God loves you so much God doesn’t force you to accept him but they are consequences for rejecting the forgiveness that God offers to you through Jesus who died for you as a sacrifice for you’re sins God wants to forgive you and save you but you need to stop running away from God the bible says all have sinned and are guilty before God but loves us so much that he made a way for us to be saved the judgement of God is near with all that’s happening in the world the earthquakes the volcanoes the vaccines it’s obvious that something is going on and you need to get right with God because you’re sins separate you from God. God doesn’t want you to Go to hell which Is why Jesus died for you In you’re place paying the price for you’re sins receive the forgiveness of God in Christ Jesus today John 3 For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. Whoever believes and has decided to trust in Him [as personal Savior and Lord] is not judged [for this one, there is no judgment, no rejection, no condemnation]; but the one who does not believe [and has decided to reject Him as personal Savior and Lord] is judged already [that one has been convicted and sentenced], because he has not believed and trusted in the name of the [One and] only begotten Son of God [the One who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, the One who alone can save him]. This is the judgment [that is, the cause for indictment, the test by which people are judged, the basis for the sentence]: the Light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For every wrongdoer hates the Light, and does not come to the Light [but shrinks from it] for fear that his [sinful, worthless] activities will be exposed and condemned . But whoever practices truth [and does what is right-morally, ethically, spiritually] comes to the Light, so that his works may be plainly shown to be what they are-accomplished in God [divinely prompted, done with God’s help, in dependence on Him].”” ‭‭John‬ ‭3:16, 18-21‬ ‭ For the wages which sin pays is death, but the [bountiful] free gift of God is eternal life through (in union with) Jesus Christ our Lord.” ‭‭Romans 6.23 2 Peter3 9The Lord is not slow to do what he has promised, as some think. Instead, he is patient with you, because he does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants all to turn away from their sins

When Boxing Organizations just give championship belts away to unqualified fighters a true champ will always be around the corner to kill these sacrificial lambs. Each weight class cannot have 8 champions because it is inevitable that 7 of them will be a fraud and of those fraudulently claiming a title one or more of them have no business in the ring against Canelo Alvarez or Terrence Crawford. This is also why I do not consider piling up belts as anything beyond cleaning up the mess that boxing organizations create. BILLY WAS UNQUALIFIED AND COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED!!!

The injury is evidently real but the fact that he didn't want to continue makes him a quitter and that's okay because everyone has different pain thresholds. I've seen other fighters carry on with similar injuries if not worse. I just don't think Saunders makes a good case for the fact that he has bashed other fighters for 'quitting' in the past. Karma i say.
gonzoducks8 Month ago
From a different cultural perspective, Saunders did quit. Before people get upset, the corner did the right thing. That is to protect their fighter and his health. But from where I come from, the fact that Saunders didn't even contest it or looked upset, it definitely looks like he quit. To continue on, you can't talk about being a Spartan warrior (or was that Fury calling him that?) and then not even getting up from your stool or arguing and being upset with his corner. After all, the Spartan women always told their husbands and sons "Come back with this shield or on it" when going to war. It also looks bad on him because he also said that "You would have to take me out of the ring dead" in regards to the Dubois fight where Daniel Dubois also had an eye injury. He was classless on how he attacked Dubois after his defeat to Joyce and now he has to eat crow. Dubois at least has been classy about this, and hopefully Mr.Suanders is a bit more humble now. There have been plenty of people who fought with a broken orbital bone, but its ruin their career. But the thing people will always say is that they never quit.

Saunders face look deformed after that massive shot. Saunders did''t quit. Canelo finish him in the 8th. It was game over, no point for Saunders to take any more damage than what he received. What is true is that Saunders didn't came to survive, he came to try to win against Canelo. Most boxers that Canelo faces go into survival mode. Callum smith was one of those boxers and we all know that even he got injuries do to Canelo's punching power.

Canelo did his thing. Looked amazing. Completely outclassed BJS. Billy Joe took an uppercut from hell and still finished the round. Was stumbled a few times but never once hit the deck. You have to respect that. People bringing up Margarito when he fought on with a broken orbital or that mexican kid that fought with a broken jaw....Margarito fought Pac-Man who was 146lbs and that Mexican kid fought some Asian guy at 130-135....you cant compare that to fighting against Canelo with a broken face. Canelo punches wayyyy harder than pacquioa or some asian guy at 130lbs...if billy joe had gone on his whole face and cranium would have caved in. He would have had a stroke and died. Quit you say? Fine...Quit before you die dude.
