Josh Taylor Says He Has Plenty Of Fights Left In His Career

Josh Taylor isn’t thinking about retirement or slowing down at all.

Taylor is coming off a decision loss to Teofimo Lopez in June of 2023 and before that, beat Jack Catterall by split decision. The Brit says those two performances are the worst of his career but he believes he still has a lot of fights left in him.

“I’ve got plenty left,” Taylor said to IFL TV. “You know what? So, I’ve had one loss. I’ve had one loss, so now I’m, all of a sudden, finished. You know, had a bad performance against Jack. And then, I don’t know, sort of OK performance against [Teofimo] Lopez. But again, it wasn’t my best. But I’ve had one loss, so what, is that me finished? Is that me finished? Come on. All the greats in the past have had losses, multiple losses, but they’re still great fighters.

“So yes, I’m a great fighter. Of course, the hunger’s still there. I’ve got ambitions to obviously get this rematch done with Jack, hopefully, at some point, hopefully sooner rather than later. And then move on, get him out of the way, move on and hopefully become a two-weight world champion. That’s the goals I wanna set. You know, I’ve achieved everything I can at 140, so in terms of achievement-wise and belts, I’ve done it all,” Taylor continued.

As of right now, Josh Taylor doesn’t have his next fight booked but all signs point to him rematching Jack Catterall. After that, Taylor says he wants to go up to welterweight and start chasing belts there.

“So, I wanna move up to welter and hopefully become a two-weight world champion, start chasing titles up there,” Taylor said. “You know, see what the lay of the land is in terms with the belts, if they become available, if Terence [Crawford] moves up or vacates or anything like that. So, the future’s bright. You know what I mean?

“There’s huge fights both at 140 and 147. So, you’ve got Devin Haney coming up, and all these [Ryan] Garcias and all that coming up as well, so there’s a lotta options are there, a lotta options are there and big fights. And that’s what I’m still in the game for, is to be involved in these big fights and produce big nights. So yeah, I can’t wait,” Taylor continued.

Josh Taylor is 19-1 as a pro and coming off a decision loss to Teofimo Lopez.
