Josh Taylor vs Jack Catterall officially under investigation by the authorities

Josh Taylor’s controversial victory over Jack Catterall is officially under investigation by the authorities.

Catterall produced the performance of his life on Taylor’s home turf, which ought to have dethroned the Scotsman in the first defence of his undisputed championship.

However, the judge’s scorecards were absolutely bonkers, scoring the fight in favour of Taylor and denying Catterall what would have been the best moment of his life.

We’ve seen a fair few dodgy points decisions in our time, but that might well top the lot, with Catterall being such a clear winner and still not being given the victory.

Unsurprisingly, as is reported by The Sun, it has now been confirmed that the fight and the manner in which it was scored is under investigation by the authorities.

“The British Boxing Board of Control will be investigating the scoring of this contest and will advise accordingly.”

Sadly, it’s hard to imagine anything actually coming from this. Too many have too much to lose by corruption being rooted out of the sport. It wasn’t the first, and it won’t be the last…
