Canelo Alvarez bounced into his mentor's arms while Billy Joe Saunders drooped in his corner with a towel hung over his head.

The fiercely mainstream Mexican contender added another super-middleweight title belt before a big group in another battle in Texas. In addition to Saunders's first misfortune as a star, the English contender may have a wrecked eye attachment.

Alvarez set up another triumph in his most recent Cinco de Mayo session with a unique right hand in the eighth round, sending 73,126 effectively shouting fans at the home of the Dallas Cowboys into a craze as we waved his arms to empower the clamor while the game proceeded.

Saunders' corner waved in disgrace before the 10th while treating a cut under his right eye. Alvarez (56-1-2, 38 knockouts) added Saunders' WBO belt to his WBA and WBC ties in his third battle under five months and second in Texas.

It was the first misfortune in quite a while for the 31-year-old Brit, who was taken to the medical clinic with a speculated broken orbital bone, battle representative Anthony Leaver said.

"I realized the battle planned to create around the eighth round," Alvarez, whose lone loss was to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2013, said through a mediator. "It wasn't pretty much as troublesome as I anticipated. I realize my readiness is acceptable, and I improve step by step."

While the wild festival delayed in the ring — to coordinate with a fantastic scene that remembered two battles for the group not a long way from it — Saunders, at last, strolled off, booed noisily every time he was appeared on the gigantic video load up over the material.

"He was unable to see," Saunders advertiser Eddie Hearn said. "I talked with (mentor) Mark Tibbs, and he wouldn't release him out. I thought he boxed wonderfully. Canelo took as much time as is needed; Billy is so precarious. However, Canelo beat him down."
