WBA / IBF light welterweight champion (up to 63.5 kg), Briton Josh Taylor reacted on social networks to the debut defeat of compatriot and featherweight Josh Warrington (30-1-0, 7 KO), who lost by knockout in the 9th round yesterday in London Mexican Mauricio Lare (22-2-0, 15 KO).
“And these hands are not easy … Wow! Saved by the gong. This is what happens when you underestimate your opponent.
Hope Josh Warrington will be okay, he’s a great fighter. As for me, the fight should have been stopped after the first knockdown. Josh missed a lot of hard hits and looked unhealthy for the rest of the time, ”Taylor wrote on his Twitter.
