Former super middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (30-1, 14 KOs) made his first statement after injuring himself against WBC, WBO and WBA super middleweight champion Saul Alvarez (56-1-2, 38 KOs).
“Thanks everyone for the messages. Broken eye socket and broken cheekbone in three places. The operation was yesterday, everything went well. Somewhere you win, somewhere you lose something.
I didn’t feel like I was in a different league with Canelo. I was caught by a good hit.
Thanks to everyone who watched this fight. I’ll be back. God bless you all, ”Billy Joe Saunders said.
