First British boxer in the four belt era and only the fifth undisputed champ ever, apparently. Achieved in only 18 pro fights. Incredible really.

All three judges scored the fight exactly the same which doesn`t happen very often - six rounds each but Taylor won by a couple of points due to two knock-downs.

And yet there's virtually zero media coverage of it. On some sh1tey ppv channel. And we all know why. Disgraceful.

Stunning achievement, even more so, given the fact that he's a Panner 😳😳 Even us Belters are delighted for him 👊👊

Aye I think this is getting more coverage stateside than here especially as the lighter weight fighters seem to be held in higher regards.

Cannot get this picked up by broadcasters over here yet they'll happily put on journeyman like Chisora parading around like a character from Grand Theft Auto in the lead up to a fight and then getting spanked (again and again) whilst expecting folk to pick it up on PPV / box office.

I meant to hold all the titles or undisputed world champ. To be fair, there were a lot less in Ken Buchanan’s days.
