BILLY JOE SAUNDERS is facing another battering from the British Boxing Board of Control and social media giants Twitter over his warped message to Chris Eubank Jr.
The supremely gifted super-middleweight world champ continued his dismal disciplinary record by mentioning his rival’s mum during a heated social media exchange this week.
The sick post attracted dozens of responses and upset a handful of women’s groups, especially as Saunders has previous form.
Twitter took the serious step of suspending his account until he removes them and the BBBofC are now trying to arrange another hearing to address the southpaw bad boy.
Twitter told SunSport: “The account is temporarily locked for violating our Abusive Behaviour Policy.”
Saunders will not be able to update fans until he deletes the offensive posts from his account.
Saunders’ boxing licence is also currently suspended while the board tries to arrange a hearing over the idiotic ‘joke’ video he made in March, instructing would-be domestic abusers how to best hit their partners.
The COVID-19 pandemic has meant the brainless prank has so far gone unpunished and now the governing body has a backlog of cases to hear on the undefeated two-weight ace.
Saunders and Eubank Jr, both 30, have been insulting each other since the build-up to their 2014 fight that Hatfields man Saunders won on points.
The talented Traveller has enjoyed a couple of impressive performances since, most notably against Andy Lee and David Lemieux.
But he is growing increasingly more famous for his actions outside of the ring than in it and a source at the board told SunSport that Saunders’ repeated misdemeanours are becoming “depressing”.
In 2018, the BBBofC fined Saunders £100,000 for another trademark video in which he offered drugs to an addict in exchange for a sex act.
In another clip he chose to share online, he told the vulnerable woman that an innocent passerby was a paedophile to encourage her to hit him.
The fighter has always apologised for his actions and promised to make a sizable donation to a domestic abuse charity out of his next purse for the most recent offence.
But he has since pulled out of the running for a mega-money fight with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez that could have taken place in September.
Saunders has also threatened to quit the sport after his close friend and advisor Daniel Kinahan was forced out of the limelight after brokering the possible Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua fight.
Ireland’s high court has heard he is the head of a billion-pound drug empire and his cartel has murdered 16 members of a rival gang.
But Saunders insists Kinahan is the one of the few people he can trust and he has only ever known the alleged crime lord to be interested in “boxing and banter”.
