Billy Joe Saunders 29-0 14KOs elicited boos from the crowd until turning it on at 1:59 of the 11th round stopping Argentinian contender Marcelo Coceres 28-1-1 15KOs.

Saunders boxed using feints, educated distance and a sharp jab to eliminate virtually all of Coceres’s offense. Just as it appeared Saunders would cruise slowly to a points victory he turned it on and stopped Coceres.

“That performance was not enough to get the likes of Canelo and the other good fighters in the ring.” Saunders said during his post-fight interview. “I got the knockout and that was what saved the performance.” “I told myself after the ninth round, I’ve got to knock him out.”
