Inside Canelo Alvarez's dressing room after Billy Joe Saunders fight as he tells Eddie Hearn 'easy money'

CANELO ALVAREZ told promoter Eddie Hearn it was 'easy money' after he battered Billy Joe Saunders at the weekend.

The Mexican was congratulated in his dressing room after he brutally ended the Brit's unified super-middleweight dreams.

Saunders was pulled out by his corner before the ninth round after a devastating Canelo uppercut battered Billy Joe's eye.

The defeated 31-year-old needed an operation on a fractured eye socket and his career is now up in the air.

In a video shared by DAZN Boxing on Twitter, Canelo is seen asking 'who's next' backstage.

Addressing Hearn, he says: "My friend, with all due respect, I told you, easy money.

Canelo then shrugs his shoulder before adding: "It is what it is."

Hearn responds: "[It was] an unbelieavble night. Crazy. You were so excited you stayed on the stage too long for your music.

Canelo then says: "I thought someone would come and say 'you need to go out'."

Saunders sustained FOUR breaks in the bones around his eye during his defeat to Canelo.


The Brit, 31, was caught with a vicious uppercut in the eighth round in Texas.

Saunders' eye instantly swelled up and closed due to the multiple fractures of the orbital bone before his corner called the fight.

He was rushed to hospital and Eddie Hearn confirmed he was undergoing surgery the day after.

And the boxer has now come out and updated fans on his progress.

He wrote on his Facebook: "Thanks everyone for msg.

"Broken eye socket and broken cheekbone in three places – operation yesterday, all went well.

"You win some and lose some. Didn't feel out my league but got caught with a good shot and couldn't see.

"Thank you all who watched. I'll be back, God bless you all."
