Boxing rising star Billy Joe Saunders, who’s supposed to fight Canelo Alvarez in May, has been suspended after posting a controversial video on social media where he talks about hitting women. Super middleweight champ claims the video was meant to be a joke but the British Boxing Board of Control didn’t find it funny.
If she’s coming at you, spitting a little bit of venom in your face….and you explode! Bam! On the chin. That should do the trick”, boxer explained.
