    Plants top notch classy dude but honestly not near big event or seasoned as Saunders. Be interesting and has to happen before Benavidez

    BJS down on two of the cards by 4 rounds, no point in him carrying on with the fight regardless of the eye injury lol, he wasn't winning that fight regardless.

    I had it all level after the 8th

    Let’s see if he gets the same abuse as Dubois.

    some people will keep running down canelos opponents beforehand so they don't have to give him credit. canelo is leading the way. more fighters should follow his example

    Is it broken then? It must have been bad for him to quit but he's never going to win anyway going backwards in Texas.

    Don't think the gypsies will be too pleased with that!

    Something poetic about gobshite Billy quitting on his stool there.

    He was actually doing well in there until a round previous when the eye went and Canelo smelt blood.

    They have to make that happen... Pay the money eddie!

    I just think Saunders was as bad as it gets at this weight class for alvarez, he's always struggled with good movers and he gave the git the big ring too(apparently the biggest ring Saunders has fought it)... Alvarez showed the same strength and weaknesses as before he's just pretty good and I think too much for plant.....

    I had it the same as the judges, alvarez just did more damage the whole fight... Maybe I'm a crap judge...

    Plant next then onto lightheavyweight I say... Andrade is no threat.

    He won’t go to 175.

    He will stay at 168 for the rest of his career and arrange suitable catch weights when needed.

    I thought it would be Canelo towards the end but BJS obviously decided he had enough after one punch.

    If it is broken then his career will go like Kell Brook.

    May be good seeing Dazn air highlighting a couple of PBC fighters in the crowd. Mix and mingle get the promotional roadblocks moving maybe. It's the only way for Plant, stars align and such.

    Missed cards but def styles mash up long as it lasted. Canelo is a one man wrecking crew once he gets you zeroed as of late. Gave Saunders just last 3 rounds until it all caught up.

    Saunders would have had to win 9 clear rounds to win (at least)

    he was doing well, even a case to say he was up a couple, but none of the judges had him winning so whats the point in carrying on with a broken face

    I had Saunders level. He fought the fight that he was always going to fight and Canelo was clearly being given rounds on the idea that he had intentions rather than punches connected or any kind of work-rate gulf on display. I can see how you may have had Canelo up on the cards but I still don't see how you can only give BJS two rounds. If Tibbs made the decision then you can't blame the fighter for following his corners advice. Canelo is a brutal finisher and you have to respect that kind of eagerness to fight such a range of challengers, but the judging was Billy Bullshit all night long.
