HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT BILLY JOE SAUN­DERS BE­ING PRE­VENTED FROM DE­FEND­ING HIS WBO

Har­vey Horn

I feel the pun­ish­ment was a lit­tle bit too harsh, but Saun­ders hasn’t done him­self any favours lately. It’s a shame be­cause when he’s on the ball he’s a real qual­ity fighter.

Dave Allen

I don’t know the ins and outs of the sit­u­a­tion but what I do know is we miss out on a big fight and it’s a shame. Rules are rules, though, and they need to be ad­hered to.

Chris Mckenna

The MSAC ad­here to the WADA code which states clearly that the sub­stance is not banned out of com­pe­ti­tion. VADA give test results to bod­ies who have their own set of rules. By the book, Saun­ders should still be fight­ing. Whether that would be right or wrong is a whole other de­bate.

Miles Shinkwin

I feel like the gov­ern­ing bod­ies need to get to­gether and de­cide what is le­gal and what isn’t. No grey ar­eas. It seems silly that he’s li­censed to box by the BBBOC but not in Bos­ton.
