Als dat inderdaad zo is, waarom heeft hij dan de video opgenomen? Geen rook zonder vuur, helaas hoor je het maar al te vaak dat boksers en andere gevechtsspecialisten hun vrouwen mishandelen. Ik vind de straf terecht, ondanks zijn spijtoptant gedrag, geloof ik niet in
Overigens staat deze oetlul er om bekend smerige 'practical jokes' uit te halen! "A video of Saunders taunting a drug addict, offering £150 of crack cocaine to perform a sex act or punch a passer-by while he sat in his Rolls-Royce, was released on 17 September 2018. The woman punched a man walking past and a friend of Billy Joe's filmed the incident of which he then drove away from.
There was no indication that Saunders had drugs in his possession, a second video then surfaced of him calling another woman "a prostitute", and stating "we don’t wanna get the clap off you". The General Secretary of the British Boxing Board of Control, Robert Smith, responded: "I have just seen the videos and I can tell you we find it disgusting. I am speaking to members of the board now. I am keen to get on with this as soon as possible." The incidents were investigated. And the BBBofC found Saunders 'guilty of bringing the sport into disrepute', issued Saunders a severe reprimand and fined him £100,000.
In March 2020, Saunders was alleged to have made a ‘phone call to Delta Airlines claiming that three other boxers on a flight from Las Vegas to New York were infected with the Coronavirus associated with the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic. The call resulted in the three boxers being removed from the flight. An audio clip of the call circulated on social media in which Saunders was heard laughing about the incident."
Oftewel, een idioot die men maar beter voor het leven kan schorsen, zo iemand is geen vlaggenschip voor deze mooie sport
