Saunders, who holds the WBO version of the world middleweight crown, was found guilty of 'bringing the sport into disrepute', slapped with the fine and given a 'severe reprimand' by the BBBofC for a clip showing him offering a woman £150 worth of the drug to perform the act on a man seated in his £250,000 Rolls Royce.

Saunders, 29, can be seen in the clip asking the apparently desperate woman to perform the act, before urging her to punch an approaching passerby, claiming the random innocent man is a "pedophile".

The former Great Britain Olympian later apologised for his actions, which were poorly received in the UK, claiming the situation was simply "banter", but did admit he was "totally in the wrong". 

This time however, Saunders has been less meek in his reply, simply tweeting a series of thumbs up emojis in an apparentlt defiant response to the verdict on Wednesday.

The fighter earned $1 million purse for his title defense against David Lemieux in Canada, and his next fight will see him face American Demetrius Andrade next month in the US.

The money from the fine will reportedly go to a charity managed by the board aimed at assisting former boxers and professional license holders.
