Saunders Outpoints Monroe Jr To Retain WBO Belt – WBO world middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders made a successful if unexciting return Saturday night when he outpointed American Willie Monroe Jr.
Saunders was making just the second defense of the WBO world title that he won back in late 2015 and though he complained of ring rust in his post-fight interviews, most experts credit a lackluster performance by Monroe Jr for the highlight-bereft fight.
