WBO Middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders as again landed himself in hot water after being caught on camera offering a drug addict ‘£150 of crack’
Footage emerged on social media of the boxer offering an unnamed women drugs in exchange to perform a sex act on his friend and to punch an innocent passerby.
Saunders asks: ‘If I was to give you £150-worth, would you t*** him off at the side there?’
The lady agrees, on the condition that he supplies her the drugs first. But the boxer instead turns his focus on a man walking towards the car.
‘I know him, he’s a p****, he’s a paedophile, punch him in the face and I’m going to give you £150-worth,’ Saunders tells the woman.
‘Punch him in the face, go on I’m going to give it to you right now, punch him he’s a paedophile, punch him.’
The woman obliges, slapping the passer-by and saying: ‘I’ve heard you’re a paedophile, mate.’
The woman, who appears to be a drug addict, is believed to be 37 and from Nottinghamshire.
A force spokesman told MailOnline: ‘Officers will be looking to identify and speak to all of those who feature in this sickening video.
‘A full investigation will be carried out into the number of offences that have been captured on film, including the offer to supply Class A drugs, aiding and abetting an assault, assault and public order offences.
‘Incidents of this nature will not be tolerated in Nottinghamshire, and we would urge anyone who witnessed this incident, or who has any further information about those responsible to come forward.’
Today the General Secretary of the British Boxing Board of Control, Robert Smith, told Sportsmail: ‘I have just seen (the video) and I can tell you we find it disgusting.’
‘I am speaking to members of the board now… I am keen to get on with this as soon as possible.’
There is not any evidence Saunders had any drugs, or any genuine intention of supplying anything to the woman, but Nottinghamshire Police are now investigating.
