Heard a somebody say in the queue for the bar before the fight that he had long covid. I think that's just folk putting two and two together though after he appeared gaunt at the weigh in. Very much doubt it's true (not that JT would ever admit it)

He'll never stop that, he's still at it just now. 

It is really weird you say that as when the fight was delayed I had a suspicion that he had caught it, then in the second round he just didnt seem right at all, speed wasn't there, reflexes and footwork were just different i said to my mate that it looked like he had long covid in jest, he then came out and said it would be October(i think) before he boxed again,  yes he's getting married but it just struck me as a very long time to be inactive, again it crossed my mind that he maybe had an under lying problem.. it would be very ironic as he doesnt believe in the whole covid thing. Chimaev in the ufc had long covid and apparently he took a long time to regain his full strength and sharpness so it shouldn't be underestimated

The speaker of the house of commons has referred the Taylor fight decision to the police

cunts need to get a grip, aye it wasn't a great decision but there have been far worse, look at campbell hattons fights a few moth back, that was far worse

Judge Ian John-Lewis, who scored Taylor-Catterall 114-111 has been downgraded by the BBBoC. They also asked the alphabet organisations to install Catterall as mandatory challenger for their belts - good luck with that.

Did anyone watch the documentary on Taylor last night on BBC Scotland - now on iPlayer? Portrait of a Fighter. Thought it was excellent. Covered his buildup to the Catterall fight. I've just finished writing a quick review. Will share once it gets published.

When is he expected to return the the ring again ? and is a rematch with Catterall on the cards ??

He's been ordered to make his next mandatory defence against Jose Zepeda. That's the problem with winning all the belts, the governing bodies all want the champ to fight their mandatory. At the end of the documentary he mentions wanting to fight and win titles at welterweight but also having a burning desire to rematch Catterall to put things to bed in that respect. No timescales given though.

I though he decided to stay at the same weight to prove a point against Catterall

Who knows really. It's boxing. Someone says one thing on Monday then does the exact opposite on Tuesday. Problem he has is he needs to face the mandatory fighters from each organisation he holds titles with. He already gave the WBA one back. Watch the documentary to see how hard it was for him making 140 for Catterall. Brutal viewing.

Article published an hour or so ago. NY Fights editor tagged Taylor on Twitter and received a RT from the man himself. Hopefully he and anyone on here enjoys the read.

Thanks mate. It's been brisk over on Twitter. Taylor, his mother and the director of the film all sharing it. BBC, Sky and Taylor's US promoter not showing much interest though. That Top Rank PR guy is a weirdo though - will bend over backwards to get you access to a fighter or press pass but will he fuck share an article. Still way better to deal with than Matchroom an Warren though - they are just pricks across the board.
