Billy Joe Saunders insists that he will be back following his unification battle with Canelo Alvarez over the weekend.
Saunders had been boxing brilliantly in the mega-fight at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, before an eye injury led to his corner pulling him out of the fight after eight rounds.
While he may not have been victorious, Saunders has received a lot of praise for how he had been boxing in the rounds leading up to the conclusion, and he has released a short statement to break his silence.
Saunders said: “Thanks everyone for the messages. I have a broken eye socket and broken cheekbone in three places. I had my operation yesterday and all went well.
“You win some and lose some. I didn’t feel out of my league but got caught with a good shot and couldn’t see, and Ben got the corner to pull it. Thank you all who watched, I’ll be back, god bless you all.”
