The blurred portion of the conversation shows Saunders telling Shalom that he needs to get back to the ring and the phrases ‘my (fight) date’ and ‘come to a deal’. Shalom responds by telling Saunders he is not delaying and he’s waiting for a ‘sign off’ from a lawyer to ‘avoid any trouble’.
Saunders captioned the story “July 2022 tho. All young fighters don’t be dealing with @boxxer Ben Shalom, I have heard about him promising all these young fighters, the world and not delivering salt for a potato😂 videos plus all the shit talk from sniffing sugar up his nose”
Saunders then tagged BOXXER and Sky Sports Boxing with an altered image of Shalom’s face.
The following post was a recording of a conversation between the fighter and the promoter. NoSmokeBoxing has transcribed the call
Shalom ‘And you’re in a contract so you’re secure anyway’
Saunders ‘Look Ben (x6). it’s gone past that mate because we’ve been here now since July talking mate’
Shalom ‘No, no so I’m saying if I can’t get you that by the end of the week then I just give you the hundred grand. I actually looked up to you growing up, I don’t want this situation with you, I think I can do what you want but I’ve got to a point now where Sky have f**ked me. I know you don’t care about that, I’m not gonna f**k you.’
Saunders then posted a screenshot of Instagram DM’s where retired super middleweight boxer John Docherty replied to Saunders’ story with ‘He’s a prick him’ when referring to Shalom.
