Billy Joe Saunders hits back at Chris Eubank Jr’s drugs cheat claims with X-rated tweet


BILLY JOE SAUNDERS has hit back at Chris Eubank Jr with a crude tweet after his old rival accused him of being a drugs cheat and a “bottle job”.

Eubank Jr launched his attack after it emerged that Saunders, 30, revealed he would not be fighting Canelo Alvarez in September as he’s “not ready”.

After the news emerged, Eubank Jr, 30, took to Twitter to slam his old foe.

He wrote: “Billy Bottle Job Saunders wont fight Canelo in two months??… I’m ready to go in 2 days!!! So a fight in September!? NO PROBLEM.”

And this morning he weighed in again, referencing his 2016 bout with Gennady Golovkin that fell through due to financial issues.

The tweet also took aim at Saunders’ video from March that brought him a suspension, after he appeared to give mock instructions on domestic violence.

It read: “Eddie Hearn already told everyone why my fight with GGG didn’t happen.

“Two months isn’t enough time for the drugs Billy Joe Saunders uses to get in shape, to leave his system, so he pulled out of the Canelo fight. Guess he’s just gota go back to beating up women again.”

While there is no evidence to suggest that Saunders is doping, he chose to hit back in crude fashion.

He wrote: “The only drugs I use is Viagra for when I dismantle your mum‘s f****.”

Saunders was the recipient of a six-month suspension back in 2018, following a failed drugs test prior to his bout with Demetrius Andrade.

He tested positive for banned stimulant oxilofrine, although stressed that it was the result of a “common decongestant nasal spray”.

Saunders, who handed Eubank Jr his first professional defeat back in 2014, sparked the war of words after revealing to The Athletic this week that not even a “billion pounds” could convince him to fight Alvarez before he is “ready”.

He said: “I’m not ready September. You can say to me, ‘Billy Joe, a billion pounds, but you’re not ready and you’re going to get beat.’ I would say keep it.

“Let me get ready, let me win and I will fight for free. I’m nobody’s stepping stone. I’m not another belt for Canelo. They want to try mind games… that don’t work with me, I play the biggest mind games in British boxing.”
