Josh Taylor Open To Fight More Than Once In 2022
Josh Taylor has become a welterweight juggernaut in recent years, thanks to his boxing masterclasses time and again.
The undisputed world champion has now got big plans for 2022.
“This year we’re probably only going to get two, maybe three fights in,” Taylor said in a recent interview.
He is set to share the ring with undefeated contender Jack Catterall on February 26 at Glasgow’s Hydro.
“I’m getting married in June so I’ll have the fight in February, have a couple of months off and then it’s my stag do and then the wedding.
“Hopefully after that, I’ll look to get out in September or maybe November. Wishful thinking would be to get out three times if I can stay in the gym and get fit but certainly twice. First, it will be the Jack Catterall fight and then hopefully a big one later in the year too.”
Last year, Taylor boxed only once.
Against Jose Ramirez, he scored two knockdowns to become just the sixth man in the sport’s history to be crowned undisputed champ in the modern four-belt era. All three judges scored it 114-112 in Taylor’s favor.
He was planning for a second bout until an injury in training camp prevented him from competing.
