Boxer Billy Joe Saunders appears to “show men how to hit women” in disgusting lockdown video
The boxer has faced severe backlash over his sick video.
In this job, it takes a hell of a lot to shock me, but professional boxer Billy Joe Saunders’s words and behaviour in this home video have managed to f*cking floor me.
It’s a disgusting watch, quite frankly.
The video – originally “circulated on WhatsApp” and later obtained by The Mirror – appears to show the professional boxer instructing men on how to hit their partners during the nationwide coronavirus lockdown. You know, if they’re “giving you mouth” or something.
“I just wanted to make a little video for all you dads, husbands, if you’ve got girlfriends”
In the video, WBO super-middleweight champion stands next to a punching bag and says the following:
“I just wanted to make a little video for all you dads, husbands, if you’ve got girlfriends etc.
“Obviously this Covid-19 is getting very serious and we are isolated away.
“If your old woman is giving you mouth and you try to be patient, you try to be calm, cool, but after the sixth day you’re just about to explode.
“So as she comes in, she’s just about to say something, all of a sudden you explode and hit her on the chin”
“All of a sudden she’s coming at you, spitting a bit of venom in your face, ready to say something, you may have left the dishes out, I don’t know what you’ve done but you’ve upset her.
“As she comes in, she’s coming at you and you’ve lost it, just keep it safe with the hands. So as she comes in, she’s just about to say something, all of a sudden you explode and hit her on the chin.
“She doesn’t know what’s going on and all of a sudden you dip down on that knee and you finish her off”
“At this time she may flash and see white and think, ‘What’s happened?’, she’s in a state of a horror.
“She doesn’t know what’s going on and all of a sudden you dip down on that knee and you finish her off. That should do the trick.”

Naturally, social media is up in arms and the disgusting video is spreading like wild fire.
I have to say, as a man, it leaves a bitter taste in my mouth and a disgust for my gender. The fact that there are still – in 2020 – men spewing this kind of garbage, and worst of all, genuinely seeming to believe it, makes me want to wretch.
On Saturday evening, Billy Joe Saunders issued an apology on Twitter, saying:
“I would never condone domestic violence and if I saw a man touch a woman I would smash him to pieces myself I have a Daughter and if a man laid a finger on her it would be end well . Apologies if I offended any women stay blessed x.”
But that still doesn’t quite explain your grim video, though, does it?
