Alvarez crushes Saunders with eighth round knockout

Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez produced a devastating uppercut to leave Billy Joe Saunders unable to leave his stool after eight rounds of their world title unification bout Sunday morning.

The lightning shot came as Saunders looked to be gaining a footing – causing an instant swelling over the British fighter’s right eye that forced his trainer to throw in the towel.

“I think I broke his cheek,” said Alvarez. “The truth is I knew it.”

Alvarez, 30, added: “I guessed in the corner and told my trainer Eddie Reynoso ‘I broke his cheek’.”

Within seconds of landing the jarring blow – made more forceful by the fact Saunders was crouching into the shot – Alvarez raised his hands in front of his rival, a devastating acknowledgment of his supremacy in front of the record 73,126 fans in attendance at Arlington’s AT&T Stadium.

Saunders, 31, was rushed to hospital with a suspected broken eye socket.
