Saunders Fined £100K For Homeless Video
Following a video where he teases and demeans a homeless woman acting like they were going to trade drugs for sex, Billy Joe Saunders was fined £100,000 by the British Boxing Board of Control.
Saunders was found to have brought the sport into disrepute and issuing a severe reprimand on top of the six figure fine. Even though Saunders was issued the reprimand, he will still be able to defend his WBO middleweight championship against Demetrius Andrade next month at TD Garden in Boston.
The British boxer appeared in a video which he posted to social media where he offered cocaine in-exchange for sexual acts and assault a person walking in the road. According to Sky Sports, the Nottinghamshire Police are currently investigating the video and a spokesperson claimed that “officers will be looking to identify and speak to all of those who feature in this sickening video.”
