Josh Taylor sent a letter addressed to the president of the World Boxing Association (WBA), Gilberto Jesus Mendoza, in which he explained his decision to vacate the 140-pound crown.

The Scotsman thanked the pioneer body for all this stage as monarch and argued the reasons why he had to make the decision. 

“I have been proud to be WBA champion since I defeated Regis Prograis since 2019,” Taylor said in his letter. “Unfortunately, due to my wedding and honeymoon this summer I am unable to fulfill my obligation to defend against Alberto Puello in a timely manner. I do not want to delay a fellow fighter from fulfilling his dreams and for that reason I must respectfully vacate.”

Finally, the British fighter wished the best to those who will dispute the crown soon: “I wish the best to my teammates who will dispute the title and I hope to be WBA champion again in the future”.
