'Women are there for sex' - Billy Joe Saunders on women's boxing
Katie Taylor has hit back at English middleweight Billy Joe Saunders after comments about women being 'made for sex' in a recent interview.
In a video uploaded to Youtube, Saunders was asked about women's boxing. He responded that "women are there for sex."
"Women's there for cleaning, cooking, washing and sex. They're not to put a headguard on and get punched in the face. Although, I must say, Katie Taylor's done extremely well and she once punched Frankie Gavin up in sparring."
"All jokes aside, that's my opinions on women, but I'm just a sex maniac."
Wicklow's Katie Taylor, an Olympic Gold medallist and amateur World Champion, hit back at Saunders on Twitter.
I feel sorry for his wife and daughter if that's his only view of women. https://t.co/YXSKHTVX22— Katie Taylor (@KatieTaylor) July 23, 2015
Saunders is the current British, European and Commonwealth Middleweight champion.
He is to face Andy Lee, from Limerick, for the WBO world Middleweight title in September.
