Billy Joe Saunders' Son Punches Willie Monroe Jr. In The Balls

It's bad enough that Willie Monroe Jr. has to deal with WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders on September 16, but now Saunders' son took an unexpected cheap shot during weigh-ins.

While both fighters were posing after weighing in, Saunders' kid decided to join the two fighters and step on the scale during the fighters' poses. Once he got close enough to Monroe Jr. give his dad a minor advantage by punching Monroe in the balls and kicking the world title challenger as well.
