Default Billy Joe Saunders suspended

======================================================

Olympian Saunders hit by ABA ban


[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Saunders received the suspension letter on his return to Britain


Olympic boxer Billy Joe Saunders has been suspended by the Amateur Boxing Association pending a hearing following allegations of lewd behaviour.
The incident was believed to have happened during a pre-Games training camp in France. Saunders, 18, was beaten 13-6 by Cuban Carlos Banteaux in the second round of the welterweight division in Beijing. A British Olympic Association spokesman confirmed that the Hertfordshire boxer has been suspended and faces a hearing


======================================================


With two more quotes from the live text :


0725: A very quick update on the Billy Joe Saunders story. GB coach Terry Edwards says he is "extremely disillusioned" by allegations relating to Saunders and says they are "on the whole, unfounded".

0727: Simon Clegg, Team GB chief, is not at all thrilled with the ABA's decision to suspend Saunders now either. "Releasing such allegations to the media at this time could prove detrimental to the critical preparations of the other three boxers who will be contesting to reach the final of the boxing competition tomorrow," says Clegg.

"There is a bit of newspaper speculation about what the allegations might be, possibly involving a French women, perhaps the posting of a video on a website. "

Is it Billy Joe that is the pikey?

His grandad is his brother, and his sister is his niece, auntie and cousin

You are a Leeds lad as well I believe......

They have moved onto a derelict building site about 250m from my house - the cricket bat is strategically placed next to me at all times when in the house, and everything metal has already been weighed in or removed from view

250 mile is pretty far really. You should not be worried about that.



I am from Barnsley but support LUFC, dads fault. Went to watch them when I was 2 vs Bradford. We won 2-0. Down hill ever since.

Probably less than 250 metres actually, but anywhere is too close, I hate the ****ers.

The first game I went to was Leeds vs Leicester 1990, the final home league game of our last promotion campaign.

I just remember Strach scoring with five minutes to go and the place went mental - my fave player was Chris Kamara
