VIDEO: Boxer's young son punches opponent in groin during weigh-in

Every parent has suffered through an embarrassing moment or two when their child loses control. The grocery store meltdown, the two-hour flight that feels like six, maybe even a meatball launch across your favorite restaurant. 

Well, this may take the cake. Check out what the son of WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders did Friday during his father's weigh-in Friday. The kid jumps on the scale and proceeds to land a low blow on his father's opponent, Willie Monroe Jr, at the 3:45 mark of the video below.

Did Dad look embarrassed? Upset? Nope. I’d say he looks -- dare I say, proud?

And it doesn’t stop at the punch and kick to the groin. While leaving the weigh-in, the boy goes on a tirade screaming obscenities at the opposing fighter, including a climactic, "F*** you!”

Billy Joe Saunders may have held the WBO middleweight title since 2015, but he has a long way to go in winning the title of “Father of the Year.”
