Jack Catterall and Josh Taylor scoring anger must bring action as controversy rumbles on
It was one of the great miscarriages of justice in boxing.Far from the worst decision ever seen, but one which just felt like it had ruined so much.Jack Catterall was robbed of becoming undisputed light-welterweight champion against Josh Taylor last weekend.But it wasn’t just the four belts he was denied taking home, it was the moment.It won’t happen but, even if the result was to be overturned and the Chorley challenger was given the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBF titles, it would never be the same.His crowning glory should have come in the ring at the Hydro in Glasgow, not over an email in the coming weeks.But that’s gone forever now. Even if Catterall goes on to win a world title in the ring, it’s unlikely to match what would have been last weekend.Upsetting the big favourite, ending an unbeaten run and beating the undisputed best in the division - that’s how you become a champion.With Taylor now moving up, Catterall’s chance may now come for a vacant title against someone we haven’t really heard of on these shores.It will still be great for Catterall, who has devoted his life to the sport, but it won’t be as special.Sadly that was taken away from him by Ian John-Lewis and Victor Loughlin, who somehow scored the fight in favour of Taylor.Let’s not forget that despite keeping his belts and unbeaten record, Taylor is also a victim here.He has wrongly been abused for the last seven days for something he didn’t do.
Six terrible boxing decisions after Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall embarrassment
Boxing fans were in uproar on Saturday night following Josh Taylor's controversial split decision win over Jack Catterall at the OVO Hydro in Glasgow.Catterall dominated the bout against unified light-welterweight world champion Taylor but was robbed of an historic victory following the shock scores of the judges.Pundits and fans alike have since slammed the decision and called for a rematch, with the fight's outcome labelled as one of the worst decisions in recent boxing history.Therefore, here are six of boxing's most terrible decisions from the past, including Taylor v Catterall, Manny Pacquiao, Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin.It had been thought that Catterall had come out on top before the judges scores were read out, having knocked down an underwhelming Taylor.However, two of the three judges had ruled the fight in favour of the unified champion, scoring the fight 114-111 and 113-112 in Taylor's favour.The third judge scored the fight 113-112 in favour of Catterall, with both fighters having had points deducted during the bout.Enraged by the decision, Catterall stormed out of the ring and towards the changing room, before later taking to Twitter to say: "What a load of s***!"Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield met at Madison Square Gardens in New York in March 1999 in a heavyweight unification bout.Following a pulsating 12 rounds, the commentators expected Lewis to be declared the victor, despite a late flurry from Holyfield in rounds eight to 11.However, boos rang around the arena after the fight was deemed a split decision draw, with HBO's announcers calling the decision "a travesty".A rematch was ordered almost immediately, taking place eight months later in Las Vegas, with Lewis winning via unanimous
