BILLY JOE SAUNDERS has been fined £100,000 and given a severe reprimand about his future conduct after video footage emerged of him appearing to offer a woman drugs.

Saunders’ actions were filmed from his car and seemingly show him offering £150 worth of drugs to the woman to perform a sex act as well as asking her to punch a passer-by, which she does, before he drives off.

The WBO middleweight champion was last week hit with a misconduct charge by the British Boxing Board of Control, which found Saunders guilty of bringing the sport into disrepute at a hearing on Tuesday.
