Boxing fans have been laying into WBO world middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders today after it was confirmed that his proposed fight with Martin Murray was called off for a second time.
Saunders has had to pull out of the bout due to injury but many fans are blasting him left, right and center on Twitter as a result.
Here’s some of the onslaught the champion has had to contend with so far today:
Don’t quite get why 2 hours ago your tweeting about wanting the GGG fight asap and now your cancelling your fight with @MartinMurrayBox 🤔 seems abit dodgy to me…..surely you knew about your ‘injury’ 2 hours ago….

Glad someone mentioned this finally. Can’t say @GGGBoxing getting old if you pull out of 2 fights in a row. Boxing is a farce for the fans these days. U book more travel hotel and tickets for cancelled shows than u actually watch fights these days

@MartinMurrayBox got more chance of finding his suitcase than getting bjs in the ring

You know what’s on the horizon, granted, it’s a big fight for huge money, but you shouldn’t be signing up for a fight with Martin that you’d no intention to fulfil. Piss poor to treat a fellow pro like this with all the sacrifices that come with that.
