Eddie Hearn hasn’t held again together with his views about an upcoming world title bout and has known as it a “joke battle.”

Hearn was talking on the post-fight press convention following Jack Catterall’s spectacular revenge win over Josh Taylor. Provided that end result, he’s now seeking to get Catterall the world title battle he thinks he deserves having missed out on changing into undisputed world champion when he was on the flawed finish of a controversial choice towards Taylor when the pair first met two years in the past.

Matchroom Boxing promoter Hearn didn’t mess about when he focused Teofimo Lopez as a possible opponent for Catterall and laid into Lopez’s subsequent opponent, Steve Claggett, in a video shared on the Matchroom YouTube channel.

“[Lopez vs Claggett] is a horrible battle. However look, Steve Claggett’s an actual powerful man. We bought provided Steve Claggett for Subriel Matias and I mentioned ‘he’s not ok.’ I can’t inform you that Subriel Matias is that this unbelievable expertise and put him in with Steve Claggett — what’s he bought, eight, 9 losses, one thing like that on his report?”

“I don’t need to be disrespectful to Steve Claggett, however it’s a f**king shame. It’s a joke, an absolute joke battle. It’s on ESPN. You speak about Teofimo Lopez coming off an excellent win towards Josh Taylor, says he’s the most effective 140-pounder on the earth. That’s a joke battle. That is the man who must be preventing Teofimo, and we consider he’ll beat him all day lengthy. We consider he must be a world champion.”

Many individuals have known as for a 3rd a last battle with Taylor to settle the rating as soon as and for all however Hearn revealed that Catterall’s desire is to go after a world title.

“Jack Catterall towards Teofimo Lopez is a correct battle, however let him do his factor. We love that battle after. I’ll be sincere. The rubber match is there. It does exist [with Taylor]. It’s a huge battle, however the focus is a world championship battle.”
