Ohara Davies Blasts Fans Who Lost Money on His Loss to Taylor

By Keith Idec

Ohara Davies is tired of disgruntled fans harassing him in the aftermath of his technical knockout loss to Josh Taylor earlier this month.

Davies told The Sun for a story that was posted on the London tabloid’s website Thursday that fans who lost money by betting on him haven’t been shy about voicing their displeasure since the July 8 bout in Glasgow, Scotland. London’s Davies talked a lot of trash prior to that bout between unbeaten British junior welterweights, but Taylor dropped Davies twice and won by seventh-round technical knockout at Braehead Arena.

The 25-year-old Davies (15-1, 12 KOs) has been criticized for what some fans and media consider quitting against Taylor (10-0, 9 KOs).


Davies took a knee after absorbing a stiff jab near the end of the third round. He later went down from a right hook in the seventh round before turning his back on the Scottish southpaw and forcing referee Howard Foster to stop the fight.

“Everywhere I go nowadays I see boxing fans,” Davies told The Sun. “They all come up to me and the first thing they say is, ‘I put a lot of money on you for your last fight – you lost me money. I put a few grand on you.’ I say to each of them, ‘Get the f*** out of here with that bullsh*t.’

“Because basically, I remember when I fought Derry Mathews people won like two, three, four, five, six, seven grand on me. People won all that money on me and you know what? I didn’t see any of that sh*t. So if you put a bet on me and you lost that sh*t, don’t come up to me and complain. Because if you won that sh*t, you weren’t going to give me any of that sh*t, so keep your sh*t to yourself.”

Davies stopped Mathews (38-12-2, 20 KOs) in the third round of their March 4 fight at 02 Arena in London. Now that he has suffered his first professional defeat, Davies has relayed a similar message to frustrated fans who’ve accosted him the past week-and-a-half.

“For my next fight, I’m back to my winning ways,” Davies said. “If anyone wants to work out a deal, of how much of your winnings you want to give me, then private message me and let me know.”

He's getting seriously trolled on Twitter every single post. Quit quit quit that's all I see. He's right about the disgruntled punters but this boy lacks dignity & class. Two things money can't buy.
