Ohara Davies: Josh Taylor is a Bum, McGuigan is a Bum Too!

Ohara Davies (15-0, 12 KOs) has promised to hand down a beating in dramatic fashion when he steps in the ring with Josh Taylor (9-0, 8 KOs) on Saturday night at the Braehead Arena in Glasgow, Scotland.

The Commonwealth, WBC Silver junior lightweight titles will be at stake in the contest.

Davies and Taylor have been trading shots with each other for several months - and many were surprised that they were matched against each other this early in their respective careers.


Davies has labeled Taylor and Cyclone Promotions, run by Hall of Famer Barry McGuigan, as "bums."

Taylor turned pro in 2015 and he's already earned a lot of experience. His pro debut took place in Texas of all places, as part of a Carl Frampton's American debut in July of that year. This is Taylor's third fight of the year.

Davies became a pro one year earlier, and saw action in March when he blew out veteran Derry Matthews with a dominant stoppage win.

“This is someone I really want to shut up. I want to shut his mouth and his coach’s mouth. I think he’s a bum and I think the whole of Cyclone Promotions are bums,” Davies explained to The Scotsman. “Taylor’s been talking loads even before I fought Derry Matthews in March and people were saying ‘you need to fight this guy so here I am’.

“I’m not afraid to fight anyone. I’ve got a fighter’s mindset. Nothing is 100 percent as I could lose this fight and so could he. But there’s never been a camp like this one I’ve been on. But that bell is not going past round six. What you don’t understand is I can’t be imitated. Everything Josh has worked on in the gym and the people he’s been sparring, he’ll soon realise I am a completely different fighter when he gets in there.”
