Billy Joe Saunders has launched a scathing attack on previously scheduled opponent Martin Murray whom accused Saunders’ injury excuse of their fight as not been true.
The fight was meant to go ahead later this month but for the second time it was called off due to injury to Saunders.
Murray and many fans have taken exception with this, with the former world title challenger posting the following on Instagram:

Won't keep going on about it and this is the last thing I'll post about the whole situation, but this proves the type of person that he is. A post he put out a few years ago when Haye kept pulling out of a scheduled fight with Fury. It wasn't acceptable when it was happening to someone he knew but now he's doing it he thinks it's ok. He's an hypicrite with double standards and is an imposter! You wouldn't hear the last of it if something like this happened to him and he's just like a typical bully who only fights and tries to intimidate people he knows he can win. The sooner people realise that he won't fight the likes of Golovkin or Canelo the better #BillyJoeShithouse #Fraud
Saunders has now seen the post, the David Haye reference and other comments, and has responded with the following video response to Murray:
It is not clear who either man will box next at this point but all in all, a disappointing set of circumstances all round.
