Billy Joe Saunders Denied Boxing License Fight Against Demetrius Andrade Off

Billy Joe Saunders Has Insulted The Eubanks On Twitter

The Hatfield champion was due to face the American at TD Gardens in Boston on October 20 but those plans were thrown out of the window after Massachusetts State Athletic Commission (MSAC), who were due to sanction the fight, voted against granting him a licence.

WBO President Francisco Valcárcel stated, "It is unfortunate that a boxer as talented as Saunders is facing this controversy and will not be able to defend the title".

Saunders was supposed to fight Demetrius Andrade in the main event of a Matchroom Boxing USA card in Boston on October 20.

Should that happen, Andrade will likely face Namibia's Walter Kautondokwa for the vacant title.

That further distinguishes it from Facebook's device, which sports a camera that toggles around the room while video chatting. Google has managed to use software tricks to compensate for all of the features enabled by dual-lens cameras on other phones.

Saunders is expected to lose his belt following the Commission's verdict on Tuesday night, which came in response to a positive on a VADA test for the stimulant oxilofrine in August. His promoter, Frank Warren, had claimed it was due to a nasal spray that was permitted out of competition.

Under World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) and UK Anti-Doping (Ukad) rules, oxilofrine is only banned in competition, meaning a fighter is only in breach of rules if the substance is detected in his stem on the day of the a bout.

'BJS has the right to appeal any decision before the grievances committee according to Rule 34 of WBO Rules and Regulations'.

It isn't the first time this year that Saunders has been in trouble with the world champion recently fined £100,000 for appearing to offer a women drugs in a video which went viral on social media. Saunders will not be punished in the United Kingdom, and is free to fight.
