Interesting. I watched this fight live and for sure, Billy Joe was ahead on points on my card. Canelo was relatively ponderous and just looking to load up on big shots. If Canelo didn't damage him pretty sure BJS woulda won due to his work-rate and strike volume. The crowd and commentators doubted BJS for quitting, very unfair. This is the first I've seen definitive proof of his injury, it wasn't given the coverage it deserved by the media and commentators

poor guy, I wish him a prompt recovery, but he boxed very dumbly, lowering his defense, playing clown... was he aware of what kind of monster he had in front? You cannot, ever, lower your guard with a boxer like Canelo. That's suicidal.

A video came out recently with Saunders addressing his injury and no evidence of the injury is visible. Is that normal for such a short period of time since the fight? Some people are using that as proof that Saunder's injury is a hoax. Your input would really interesting

are you supposed to see that injury with the naked eye? I didn't think it was that bad in the fight but that doesn't mean it isn't serious.
To keep things short, basically he got fucked up bad?

I just saw a selfie video of Saunders driving a car with no inflammation or bruising around the eye post-surgery. How is that possible after four weeks? Wouldn't he have trouble seeing out of his right-eye? Why no marks on his face?

My respects to Canelo Alvarez that avoided hitting Saunders on that injured eye and instead focused only on the body. That is a true champ. Good thing Saunder's corner stopped the fight to avoid permanent damage or more.

Why are people spending so much time talking about this guys injury. It happens. He hasn’t been the first and will not be the last. Seems like people want fans to feel as he had reason to quit. He said it himself, a real fighter fights through injury. He chose not to come out for the next round. Case closed.

Believe it or not, this might be the most important thing you ever read… How do you get saved? How do you go to Heaven? What does the Bible say about salvation? Here’s salvation plain and simple: All have fallen short of God’s glory and perfect moral standard: all have sinned (Romans 3:23), and just one sin makes us deserving of Hell (James 2:10). I’ve lied, you’ve lied . . pretty simple. God requires absolute perfection to enter Heaven because He is perfectly holy and righteous. God doesn’t want us to be separated from Him, He loves us and He loves you . . .the Bible says He is a loving friend who sticks closer than a brother. Would a loving God make salvation difficult? Of course not! What did He do to fix this sin problem? God left Glory in Heaven, manifested Himself in the flesh as a human, Jesus Christ, never once sinned, perfectly fulfilled the law, did not deserve punishment, yet He became OUR sin for US. John the Baptist said about Jesus: “Behold the lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” Colossians 2:14 says “Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;” And, right before Jesus died, He declared “It is finished!” In other words, the debt of sin has been paid off in full (past, present, and future sins) by His death on the cross. He finished all of the work, and thus, there is no work for you to do. Ephesians 2:8-9 says “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that NOT OF YOURSELVES: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” After this, He was buried in a tomb. On the third day, He bodily resurrected from the grave and was seen alive by over 500 people at once and also the disciples and the apostles. Hard for you to believe in the resurrection? Well, these disciples and apostles, like Paul, went on to preach this Gospel, were severely persecuted, and suffered horrific deaths for their faith. Would they suffer trials and death for a lie? How do you accept this free gift of salvation and forgiveness of all your sins so that you can be promised everlasting life? Jesus answers this in John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever BELIEVETH in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” When Jesus spoke to Martha, He said: “ . . I am the resurrection, and the life: he that BELIEVETH in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and BELIEVETH in me shall NEVER DIE. Believest thou this?” (John 11:25-26). Do you notice a common theme here? To be saved, all you must do is believe the Gospel, that the Lord Jesus Christ died for all your sins past, present, and future, was buried, and rose from death on the third day, and trust in that alone for your salvation believing that you can never lose your salvation because Jesus paid it all. The instant you do that, God seals you with the Holy Spirit of Promise and promises you everlasting life. Therefore, since salvation does not depend on your own behavior or works or commitment to God or maintaining your faith, but depends solely on Jesus’ finished payment for your sin on the cross and defeat of death when He rose from it, you can be 100% sure that you will go to Heaven. 1 John 5:13 says “These things have I written unto you that BELIEVE on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may BELIEVE on the name of the Son of God.” I pray that today is the day of your salvation. Jesus loves you, and I love you too. The book of John and Romans are great places to start in a KJV Bible. God bless you. Here are some additional verses: Acts 16:30-31 “And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” John 6:28-29 “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.” John 6:40 “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” John 5:24 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” Titus 3:5 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;”

I wish we could get a conclusion or summary at the end of the videos on a scale of the severity of the injury from moderate to severe. Or if the person will ever heal from that type of injury at all and return to normal. Also a conclusion of how long recovery might take for injuries.

Sheesh.. Saunders was so confident & somewhat disrespectful in his Brash words on how he was gonna crush Canelo in front of the entire world🌎 Instead he ended up with a broken face.. 🤜🏽💥😖He never possessed the power to even hurt Canelo, so I don't know what he was thinking 🤔❓😳Hope he recovers and his eyesight is ok.

This video is fake. I can tell you about many boxers with the same injury as Billy but no broken bones. And guess what. They all look like a side of their face is dented in due to swelling. Go look at Chris Algeri or denis lebedev for example. What's more terrible is this RUvid doctor can't even say anything till he has xrays. He's not a pro. And should not be giving fake opinions. Probably being paid by Eddie hearn. Mtk and the rest.

That was an excellent explanation. At the end of the fight, I was appalled by the way the commentators were talking with regard to BJS - with no medical consideration whatsoever, they were almost ridiculing him for giving up. I almost wish there was a way to fine them for that. The level of risk these guys expose themselves to is really intense and they always deserve respect for having the courage to even go in there at all. Especially against Canelo.
