Boxing Fight: As Scotland’s undisputed champion claimed he is “nearly unbeatable” before their world title battle, Josh Taylor mocked Jack Catterall’s tactics.
Taylor faced Catterall again at a press conference in London, just a day after a media appearance in Edinburgh, and the WBC, WBA, IBF, and WBO super-lightweight champion ignited a heated debate with his WBO mandatory challenger.
Catterall, who won his shot at the world title after 26 straight victories, predicted that a stunning defeat at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow on February 26th would damage Taylor’s image.
“I’m going to win,” Catterall declared. “This struggle can be won in a variety of ways. There was no hesitation or question in my mind.”
“By what means?” Taylor responded.
“Arriving in Scotland and assuming the identity of Jack Catterall. I’m going to get the better of you, “Catterall remarked.
“How and in what fashion are you going to do that?” Taylor inquired again.
“I’m going to punch your skull in,” Catterall replied.
Taylor stated, ” “Isn’t it as simple as that? Return to your bed.”
Taylor’s victory over Jose Ramirez last year completed his collection of world titles, and he also has victories over top-ranked opponents like Regis Prograis, Viktor Postol, and Ivan Baranchyk.
Taylor expects to put on another great effort against Catterall in front of his Scottish fans.
“I believe I am one of the finest fighters on the planet, and now everyone else believes the same thing,” he stated.
“I’m proving to myself that I can beat the finest in the business time and time again.
“This fight on February 26 will be no exception. I defeated Jack Catterall, and I did so comfortably, and now I’m on to larger and better things.
“I believe I’m approaching my prime now, and it’ll take a truly exceptional fighter and a truly exceptional talent to dethrone me.”
“Right now, I feel practically unbeatable.”
