Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury has come out to usher praises to Billy Joe Saunders after his defeat to Canelo Alvarez after being slammed by haters, MySportPlug reports.
The fight between Canelo Alverez and Billy Joe Saunders was stopped after eight rounds with the Brit unable to continue due to a problem with his right eye following a devastating uppercut from his opponent.
After the fight, promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed yesterday that Brit ‘suffered multiple fractures to the orbital area’ and underwent surgery on the injury in the evening which was successful.
The recent development has seen some rival and haters of Billy Joe Saunders coming out to blast him as Chris Eubanks slamming him that he was forced to retire as he laughed at him.
The injury will see the boxer go out for a very long time before he can be able to recover and step into the ring once again, but it looks unlikely to happen for Billy Joe.
Although Tyson Fury has come out to defend Billy by sending praises to him despite losing the match which he also sent him a message of encouragement.
