Tyson Fury Reacts To Josh Taylor’s Controversial Win Over Jack Catterall
Tyson Fury is not a happy man after the recent split-decision defeat of Jack Catterall at the hands of Josh Taylor.
He has lashed out at the judges as he believes they have tarnished the reputation of Catterall.
The pair took on each other in the undisputed title fight the previous month in Scotland. Catterall threw a commendable performance in the fight and was looking all set to be declared the winner but then the decision of the judges came out.
Everyone was shocked to see Taylor retain his titles.
Soon after receiving plenty of criticism, the British Boxing Board of Control officially launched the investigation of the result of the fight.
In an interview, the WBC heavyweight champ was seen in disbelief while pouring his thoughts on the title fight. ”I think the judging these days is a disgrace,” he said.
”They can’t change the decision now and they’ve destroyed Jack Catterall’s life and career. It’s disgraceful.”
Catterall has also alleged there is corruption in the sport. He feels that he has lost respect for the organization and is losing confidence in its transparency.
Even the General Secretary of the organization, Robert Smith, admitted to being taken aback after seeing the fight result.
Nonetheless, judge Ian John-Lewis will be called for an explanation and face the investigation process of the British Boxing Board of Control.
