Billy Joe Saunders and Willie Monroe Jr. squared off at the weigh in. That’s when things got really awkward. Billy Joe Saunders’ little boy stood on the scale between the two fighters. Willie Monroe Jr. warmly said hello to the little boy and patted him on the head. It was at that point, Billy Joe Saunders little boy punched Willie Monroe Jr. right below the belt and then kicked him in the leg. Security immediately stepped in and moved the boy away. Billy Joe Saunders seemed oblivious to the incident and just kept posing at the weigh in.
To make matters worse, Billy Joe Saunders took to twitter to justify the incident:
