Conor Benn and Josh Taylor exchange words

Disgraced British welterweight star Conor Benn has called out recently defeated Josh Taylor on various interviews and through his verified social media channels.

Benn has been out of the ring since last April due to two consecutive failed drug tests in the lead up to a fight with British foe Chris Eubank Jr last September.

It has been widely reported that Benn could face Eubank in Abu Dhabi in September, but that has since changed to possibly happening in the UK too. Surely this fight can happen in two places at once.

Regardless, the Conor Benn PR machine is in full swing with another callout happening this weekend. Benn has taken aim at former undisputed light welterweight champion Taylor just a week after his first career defeat to Teofimo Lopez in New York.

Benn stated on his instagram story “Josh Taylor I’d happily give you your 3rd beating on the spin. Don’t play with me.”

Taylor responded with “Must be the road rage kicking in? Or is that the pregnancy hormones?”

Benn countered back with “I wouldn’t throw stones if I was you…Josh Taylor I get you want your last payday before retirement.”

Taylor got the last word with “You won’t be fighting anywhere anytime soon. But I’ll happily fight you."

Taylor said he intended to move up to the welterweight division immediately after losing his title at Madison Square Garden.
