It will be a while before Billy Joe Saunders of the UK is back in the ring one would imagine.

He put up a good fight against the pound for pound best fighter in the world Canelo Alvarez in the great State of Texas.

Mexican Alvarez too good in the end though.

The injury that caused Saunders’ trainer coach Tibbs to withdraw his man from the contest was quite severe.

Perhaps one of the most brutal seen in a professional boxing ring in recent times as this shows:

We wish Saunders a speedy recovery.

It takes a lot of for anyone to step into a boxing ring at the end of the day.

As for Alvarez, onwards and upwards.

Viva Mexico.
