Canelo appeared behind on the scorecards, however benefited from a bruise under the proper eye of Saunders after the seventh spherical, and capitalized with a punch to the proper eye of Saunders in a low crouch, which left Saunders unable to see out of the attention.
Canelo, 56-1-2 with 38 knockouts, Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, felt he broke a part of Saunders face with the cash punch, a cracking feeling which turned the bout.

Canelo missed loads. Saunders flaw needed to do with ego. Continuously dropping his palms, mocking Canelo when Canelo landed punches, and even sticking his tongue out. This tactic didn’t work for Sugar Ray Leonard in opposition to Hector Macho Camacho, and it didn’t work for Saunders right here.
