Undisputed junior welterweight champion Josh Taylor is still dealing with the backlash of his controversial twelve round split decision win over mandatory challenger Jack Catterall.
Back on February, Taylor got off the floor to edge out Catterall on two of three official cards - with most observers scoring the contest in favor of Catterall
The British Boxing Board of Control is investigating the outcome. The BBBoC has already downgraded judge Ian John-Lewis, who was one of the two judges to score the bout for Taylor.
Taylor has watched the contest several times and confidently believes that he did enough to win a close fight.
"I am still of the opinion that I did just enough to the win the fight," Taylor told Sky Sports News.
"I have watched it back a few times now and my first impressions when I watched the fight back is that it was a very close fight and it could have gone either way. I personally scored the fight 113-112 to myself, but I can see why a lot of people thought Jack won because there were a lot of rounds in there that could have gone either way, you could have scored it for Jack or for myself, a lot of swing rounds.
"So if it had been a draw it would have been a fair result, if it had gone to Jack by a point or two I wouldn't have grumbled, either. Obviously I would have been gutted if I had lost my titles, but it is what it is. It is one of those fights that could have gone either way and I came away with a victory on a judges split decision. It turns out I got the win and I felt that I did enough to win as well."
According to Taylor, he is likely moving up to the welterweight division, which in turn creates opportunities for others to fight for the vacant titles that he leaves behind.
