BILLY JOE SAUNDERS has been whacked with a £15,000 fine for his disgusting video that appeared to condone domestic violence.
The brilliant southpaw posted a video in March of himself punching a bag and advising viewers how to mimic his skills if a partner was annoying them during lockdown.
The two-weight champ insisted it was a private joke, apologised and vowed to make a donation to a womens charity.
And, due to the COVID-19 lockdown and Saunders doing a brief training camp in Fuerteventura, the British Boxing Board if Control hearing was delayed.
But the BBBofC – who are depressed at the prospect of the undefeated super-talent spoiling his career with repeated brainless antics – have finally dished out a punishment.
The Hatfields super-middleweight has escaped a ban but he has been hit in the pocket, with the funds going to a charity.
The BBBofC said: “Billy Joe Saunders appeared before Stewards of the Board on Wednesday, 22nd July 2020 due to recent comments made on Social Media.
“Following consideration of Mr. Saunders explanation, the Stewards found Mr. Saunders guilty of misconduct and have fined him £15,000.00p to be donated to charities.
“The suspension of his boxer’s licence has been lifted.”
Saunders could still face more punishment over a sick Tweet he sent to rival Chris Eubank Jr.
The warring pair clashed on social media at the start of July with a string of boxing-related barbs.
But two-weight world champ Saunders went OTT with an unprintable mention of Eubank Jr’s mum.
Twitter took the serious measure of banning him from the platform until he deleted the warped post and will monitor future conduct.
Saunders and Eubank Jr, both 30, have been insulting each other since the build-up to their 2014 fight that 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 pea-brained actions outside of the ring than in it.
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 has done good deeds with fans and the NHS that is too-often overshadowed but tasteless pranks.
