McGuigan has shared that following the victory, Taylor has continued his steady progression up the Jr welterweight ladder of contenders. “After that performance, he is number six in the WBC, number 11 in the IBF. We haven’t canvassed the WBO and WBA yet but they will be looking at him after that performance.” McGuigan said
“He wasn’t perfect but he had to show his robustness and toughness and it was a spectacular finish.
“Nobody had done that before to that guy – and that is a huge statement,” McGuigan added.
