Edgar Berlanga: “Billy (Joe Saunders) P*ssy”

By: Hans Themistode Super middleweight contender Edgar Berlanga was not too pleased with the performance of Billy Joe Saunders this past Saturday night. The British native took on unified super middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez in front of over 73,000 fans at the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas. Saunders, 31, attempted to box and move against Alvarez but his defensive acumen was no match for the offensive onslaught of the Mexican star. With the right eye of Saunders falling apart, the slick southpaw was forced to remain on his stool as the start of round nine began. Despite Saunders suffering a quadripod fracture and has since undergone surgery, Berlanga ripped into his actions. “Billy p*ssy,” said Berlanga during an interview with ESNews. “He quit. At this caliber man, you supposed to show out. Give a f*ck if you go down, if you get knocked out, you get stopped you supposed to go out like a champ. To quit on the stool like that is no good.” The exact moment in which Alvarez essentially shattered the face of Saunders, took place in the eighth round. The British product lunged in with a left hand and attempted to duck low once he missed. A fully aware Alvarez connected with a sharp right uppercut that left Saunders on weak legs. The bell to end the round came soon after and a wincing Saunders slumped into his corner. His team attempted desperately to reduce the swelling but we're unable to. As round nine began, Saunders remained on his stool as his corner waved their hands and said their man was done for the night. Prior to the stoppage, Saunders appeared to be boxing well. Two of the three judges sitting ringside had their contest 6-2 in favor of Alvarez while the third and final judge had it a bit closer at 5-3. Reporter and commentator for DAZN in, Chris Mannix, actually had Saunders winning by the score of 5-3. In the mind of Berlanga, he vehemently disagrees with the scorecard of Mannix. He also disagrees with anyone who gave Saunders even a single round. In Berlanga’s opinion, Alvarez was dishing out a one-sided beating. “He won every round in my eyes. Billy Joe wasn't doing nothing, he was running.” The post Edgar Berlanga: “Billy (Joe Saunders) P*ssy” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.

Mikey Garcia On Canelo Alvarez: “I Don’t Think Anybody Can Beat Him”

By: Hans Themistode An epiphany of sorts hit Mikey Garcia. The former four-division world champion sat ringside this past weekend at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas as unified super middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez dominated Billy Joe Saunders, causing the British native to retire on his stool at the end of round eight. After their showdown, it was revealed that Saunders suffered a quadripod fracture and is now facing an uncertain future. With the super middleweight division filled with several top-level fighters, the weight class is commonly regarded as one of the deepest in all of boxing. Still, despite that, Garcia believes everyone else is fighting for second place as he doesn't see anyone handing Alvarez a defeat anytime soon. “I don’t think anybody can beat him,” said Garcia during an interview with Fight Hub TV. “I think he’s the best one.” Alvarez, 30, adjusted quickly to the box first approach of Saunders as he quietly stalked his man in the opening round. After successfully evading most of the Mexican star's deleterious shots during the first half, Alvarez found what he was looking for as he landed a huge right uppercut that effectively ended the night. Regardless of the one-sided nature of their contest, Garcia tips his cap in the direction of Saunders. Although Alvarez ultimately won, the slick southpaw made things a bit more interesting than most were expecting. “Great performance,” said Garcia of Alvarez. “He had an answer for everything. Saunders had a little bit of success in the middle rounds but not enough to complicate things too much. I think Canelo did great.” With Alvarez adding the WBO super middleweight belt previously held by Saunders to his WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine titles - the pound-for-pound star is only one title short of becoming the first undisputed super middleweight champion of all time. To do so, Alvarez will look to now take on IBF titlist, Caleb Plant. The Nashville Tennessee native hasn't backed down from his belief that no matter how great Alvarez is, the Mexican product will ultimately fall at his hands. In the opinion of Garcia, however, he simply doesn't agree with that statement. While he acknowledges that Plant is a terrific fighter, he merely views Alvarez as someone on another level. “Caleb needs to box tremendously all night, which he can, I’m not saying he can’t but I just think Canelo will have an answer for it.” The post Mikey Garcia On Canelo Alvarez: “I Don’t Think Anybody Can Beat Him” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.
