After weighing-in below the 160-pound (11 stone and 6 pounds) middleweight limit, Billy Joe Saunders flexed for the cameras at a press event on Friday.

The video of Saunders' kid's attacking Monroe Jr.'s family jewels can be seen in the video below.

While weigh-ins before a boxing match are usually expected to be quite intense, things took an interesting turn when WBO middleweight world champion Billy Joe Saunders' son got involved in the action.

As Saunders' son stepped onto the scale, Monroe Jr. tried to interact with the child.

Promoter Frank Warren put his hands on Stevie's shoulders and Monroe ruffled his hair, prompting the boy to hit Monroe and then aim a kick at him.

Saunders has done his rep no favors, labeling Monroe a "queer" and making a rude crack about his mum.

American boxer Willie Monroe Jr. thought his latest weigh-in for an upcoming fight would be just like the others, but he ended getting more than what he bargained for.

Saunders himself has now tweeted about the incident claiming that his son was simply defending himself as he's not used to being touched by strangers.
