Josh Taylor Vows To Prove ‘Biased’ Media Wrong After Rematch Vs. Jack Catterall
Josh Taylor has vacated all but one junior welterweight title to face Jack Catterall again.
WBO junior welterweight champion Josh Taylor is hoping to answer his critics in the aftermath of the planned rematch against Jack Catterall.
Earlier this year, the 31-year-old became the undisputed champion at the weight by clinching the WBO, IBF, WBA, and WBC titles after a 12-round split decision win over the English boxer.
“When I win this fight and all the so-called top boxing pundits, the outlets, want to be your friend again, they can all get to France as far as I’m concerned,” Taylor said on the Edinburgh Evening News.
“They showed who they wanted to win the fight with all their bias.
“After the fight, it was all ‘Jack this and Jack that,’ but I’m still the champion, and I’ve heard nothing from anyone, and the stuff they have written about me, they’ve shown their true colors.”
Taylor, who was the favorite going into this fight, struggled to match the fighting style of Catterall throughout.
“It wasn’t that when I became the first Briton in the modern era to become undisputed world champion, and they didn’t want to know.
“It’s a grudge match. It’s become personal with the things that have been said since the fight, like Jack moaning about corruption and all this sh!t.
“There’s a bit of needle there so I’m going to get in the ring and knock him out this time.”
The rematch is set to take place on February 4 at the Hydro in Glasgow. This match is a reality because the Scottish boxer has vacated the IBF, WBC, and WBA titles.
