As Billy Joe Saunders and Willie Monroe Jr. fronted off for the cameras to preview their middleweight deed defend on Saturday night, Saunders’ 7-year-old lad sneaked onto the scale between them. Monroe, in response, rumpled the boy’s mane. Saunders’ kid reacted by swiping Monroe in the seeds and trying to knock him in the leg.
It was a most unusual spate at a boxing weigh-in.
Notice how Saunders had little reaction to his kid’s attempted abuse. Likewise note how Monroe’s trainer T.J. Nolan came really pissed, telling the proponent it was “bullshit”( the boy then apparently responded that, in fact, Nolan was “bullshit” ). Then, the boy was discover shrieking “Fuck you.”
Afterward, Saunders–who announced Monroe a “queer” earlier this week–seemed penalty with his boy’s behavior.

According to the Sun , Nolan said, “When you reel with a wolf backpack and the leader of the multitude is like Saunders is, that's the outcome--you come screwed up little kids. That's what is wrong with "todays world". Maybe Billy Joe Saunders is coaching his kids to do wrong. He seems like a unpleasant person.”
The undefeated Saunders is the gambling favorite to overpower Monroe on Saturday night. But boxing devotees primarily detest him because of his grating identity, and his son’s carry-on on Friday probably won’t do much to help Saunders’ popularity--even if his teenager has quite a right hook.
