In the latest social media war, Martin Murray has lashed out at WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders after the undefeated titleholder withdrew from their scheduled fight citing a hamstring injury.

The two were due to meet at London’s O2 Arena on June 23 on a Frank Warren promoted card. It was the second time Saunders had withdrawn from the fight.

“I won’t keep going on about it and this is the last thing I’ll post about the whole situation, but this proves the type of person that he is,” Murray wrote on social media. “A post he put out a few years ago when [David] Haye kept pulling out of a scheduled fight with [Tyson] Fury.

“It wasn’t acceptable when it was happening to someone he knew but now he’s doing it he thinks it’s ok. He’s an hypicrite with double standards and is an imposter!

“You wouldn’t hear the last of it if something like this happened to him and he’s just like a typical bully who only fights and tries to intimidate people he knows he can win.

“The sooner people realise that he won’t fight the likes of Golovkin or Canelo the better.”

Saunders replied to the comments on his Instagram account.

“I said those things because Tyson Fury spent about £90,000 on two training camps but there’s a big difference between me and David Haye,” he said in a live video on Monday.

“I make smart decisions, I’m undefeated and you’ve lost about ten times. I’m at the business end and when there are millions at stake I don’t take risks with an injury.

“I will fight anyone, anywhere. If you think I scared of you Martin Murray, I’ll be at Tyson Fury’s fight on Saturday night, come to see me face to face then.”

With the bad blood involved, it would be a shame if we never get to see these two settle the differences in the ring.
