  • Comments Thread For: Josh Taylor vs. Apinun Khongsong - Purse Bid Set For Jan. 24

    BoxingScene.com had been advised that the International Boxing Federation has set down the date of January 24th for the official purse bid for Josh Taylor's mandatory defense against Apinun Khongsong. Sampson Boxing, who recently signed Khongsong to a promotional agreement, was no longer willing to participate in negotiations and requested an immediate purse bid pursuant to IBF Rule 10A. Taylor, who holds the IBF and WBA world titles at junior welterweight, recently signed a promotional agreement with Top Rank.

          Taylor and Khongsong have almost identical records: Taylor 16 - 0 12 KOs and Khongsong 16 - 0 13 KOs.

          So it looks like a pick 'em type fight ...

            Watched a minute of Khongsong vs Kondo(i think he lost to Lipinets). I wanted him to be good. But I just don't see it.

                  They dont.

                  They are there for a reason otherwise this business will become an exclusive club or a cartel of just a few fighters and that is not good for the game long term.

                  Respect to the IBF for insisting on them.
                  Spence HAD TO be a mandatory to get a title shot.

                  Apinun ( never seen him fight ) may not be a Spence but he also has a family to feed.
                  Let him get his chance.

                    Regis Prograis: I donít want to go to Top Rank and be in same predicament as Terence Crawford

                    On if heíd like a rematch with Josh Taylor next:

                    ďWell, to be honest, they not gonna fight me next. You know, itís not gonna happen next. Imagine if I was Josh Taylor, I wouldnít fight me next. Let him fight somebody and then fight maybe (Jose) Ramirez and then maybe we can get the fight. But I want the rematch eventually, but knowing boxing, itís not gonna happen right now. It probably wonít even happen no time soon.

                    ďSo I think theyíre gonna, since he signed with Top Rank, mostly likely gonna try to get the Ramirez fight. And as far as me, Iím still trying to figure out which way Iím gonna go, see which route Iíma go.Ē

                    On if he feels left out with Taylor signing with Top Rank who already has Ramirez:

                    ďNo, not really. I mean, I can go over there. But like I said, Iím trying to figure out which move Iíma make, which is the more strategic move for me to make. Because on the other side they still got the PBC and they still got Eddie with Matchroom and stuff like that, and of course they have Top Rank.

                    ďI think itís a good move for (Taylor) but I donít wanna be over there and be in same predicament Crawford is in. So I definitely wouldnít wanna do that.Ē
