Yet despite Saunders putting in his best efforts, the world of social media was left largely unimpressed by the way his team called time on the contest.

Team Saunders threw the towel in while their man was still on his stool, with fans immediately using this as a reason to snipe at the British star.

One Twitter user wrote: ‘There’s been quite a bit of Billy Joe Saunders criticism on the timeline, and fair enough. But I want to draw this distinction: Despite whatever you think of him as a person, as a boxer he’s also a total baby who quit as soon as he encountered adversity.

Another added, in more ruthless fashion: ‘Canelo landed a peach of a uppercut. Timing beats speed and he made that bum Billy Joe Saunders quit on his stool.’

The theme quickly became consistent, with user @HintsMarcs musing: ‘Well well talk the talk Billy Joe Saunders but quit on his stool, not a true champion.’
