Not that his longstanding feud with Billy Joe Saunders doesn’t have anything to do with it, but Chris Eubank Jr. is still publicly wondering how many passes Saunders is going to receive before he really faces some disciplinary action.
Saunders, of course, just had his boxing license temporarily suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control for some seriously off-color remarks he made on social media. And it was little more than a year ago when Saunders got into some trouble for offering drugs to a woman if she blew off his friend before inducing an assault.
So @bjsaunders_ a women beating, COVID-19 hoaxing, drug abusing, police impersonating Moron… oh yeah paid a vulnerable women to punch an innocent man in the face as-well. How many more chances is this idiot going to get before his license is taken away for a good amount of time

“As fighters at the top we have the kids looking up to us, copying what we do inside & outside of the ring. Having Saunders as a representative of boxing is an injustice to all women suffering in abusive relationships & to the kids who look to learn from us as ambassadors.”
Saunders would offer his succinct reply to Eubank Jr in photo form:
