World champion boxer Billy Joe Saunders has apologised for posting a video on social media advising men how to hit their partners during the pandemic lockdown.

The WBO super-middleweight champion demonstrated boxing techniques on a punch bag.

The Hatfield fighter later tweeted:

"I would never condone domestic violence and if I saw a man touch a woman I would smash him to pieces myself.

"I have a daughter and if any man laid a finger on her it would be end well [sic].

"Apologies if I offended any women - stay blessed."

In the video posted earlier, the boxer explains how to come back "if your old woman is giving you mouth" and demonstrated how to "hit her on the chin".

Saunders himself was near to closing a deal to fight Canelo Alvarez in May before the COVID-19 pandemic shut sporting events down worldwide.
