The British Boxing Board of Control has suspended WBO super-middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders after he released video in which he appeared to condone men engaging in domestic violence during coronavirus isolation.
Undefeated Saunders released the video to social media showing him striking a punching bag and offering advice on techniques to use on one’s spouse or girlfriend should tempers begin to fray during the current period of social distancing.
Saunders issued an apology following a social media backlash, saying that he “would never condone” domestic violence and implied that the video was little more than a poorly-delivered joke.
Too little, too late.
