In front of a record-breaking crowd of 73,126 people inside AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Canelo Alvarez stopped Billy Joe Saunders in the eighth round when Saunders didn't come out for the ninth. The win gave Alvarez the WBO championship to go along with his WBA (Super) and WBC super middleweight titles.

The win also extends Alvarez's (56-1-2, 38 KOs) unbeaten streak to 15. What's next for Alvarez is a possible showdown with IBF titlist Caleb Plant to determine the first-ever undisputed 168-pound champion.
