It has been a whirlwind past couple of days for former WBO Super Middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (30-1, 14KOs). The former champion has been under constant criticism since his perceived quit job against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (56-1–2, 38KOs) on May 8. In a closely contested bout, the outspoken British fighter would seemingly pull his own version of “no mas”.
A counter-right uppercut from Alvarez would be the cause of the unwillingness of Saunders to continue in the biggest fight of his career. Opinions on his decision range from defending him to others declaring that he tucked his tail and quit. However, many people wanted to hear from Saunders himself.
