  • Comments Thread For: Josh Taylor Stripped Of WBA 140-Pound Title, Alberto Puello To Fight For Vacant Belt

    Hours before a rematch to hopefully crown boxing's next undisputed champion, one has been removed from the mix. Josh Taylor has been forced to relinquish his WBA junior welterweight title for failure to comply with an ordered mandatory title defense versus Dominican Republic's Alberto Puello. Scotland's Taylor (19-0, 13KOs) was given 20 days from the April 22 purse bid hearing--won by TGB Promotions--to contractually agree to the fight to avoid being stripped, instead ignoring the order altogether and forcing the sanctioning body to take action.

    If only he was a Haymon fighter, you can hold WBA belts for years without defending if you are one of those guys. It's almost like they are connected somehow, must be the payoffs.

      Josh Taylor should just move up to 147 now.

        Who cares about the WBA belt? Taylor has already proven he is the champion at this weight. Whomever wins that WBA belt will be a phony imposter.

            Puello/Barroso is an interesting fight, could go either way. Regardless of the outcome, there will be a lot of sharks circling around the winner of that fight. Could also see Tank jump up again for the winner imo

                Stripped him the first chance they got. They can probably get a bigger cut from a less unified champion.

                  Another haymon fighter, another vacant title.

                  Wonder how many subscriptions to blacked the sanctioning bodies have in their office and home computers...

                    200k purse for a unified champ? WBA should be ashamed but you can't shame an organization that has no dignity or integrity to shame
