Just hours being punched and kicked in the groin by Billy Joe Saunders’ son during the official weigh-in on Friday, Willie Monroe Jr has threatened to take the matter to the court.

The American professional boxer took to his official Twitter account to share his reaction on the incident, saying that he will sue Saunders, his promoter Frank Warren and the British Boxing Board of Control (BBofC) in case he fails to receive any compensation.

“if I’m not compensated something for being punched and kicked in the Balls by Saunders Son im gonna Sue Frank Warren The BBofC and Saunders because I’ve been trying to not do face offs and get into any confrontation the whole time I’ve been here because I know Saunders wants to Sabotage the fight…and Frank Warren kept insisting that we do so and look what happened they said I didn’t wanna face off because I was Scared the only thing I was scared of is them trying to Find a way to weasel out of the fight I’m to close to winning to sit here and let them take it from me on some sneaky stuff I my team has gotten Gypsy Threats and racial slurs throw at us for an entire week thats not something a fighter should have to deal with especially in 2017 I will sue if something isn’t done about this and my team and lawyers fully have my back so to Frank and Billy and to the BB of C for allowing this to happen we will have to hash this out one way or another had the shoe been on the other foot you guys would try to hang me out to dry”

This comes after Saunders played down his son’s action on Twitter. “My sons been taught when A stranger puts their hands on them they don’t know punch and run away self defence (sic),” he wrote.

The duo will fight for the WBO middleweight title of the world on Saturday.
