Josh Taylor: Home town celebrates the undisputed world champion during open top bus parade
The East Lothian home town of champion Josh Taylor has been celebrating as the boxer waves from an open top bus.
Sunday afternoon saw a parade through the seaside town of Prestonpans in honour of undisputed world champion Josh Taylor
Crowds cheered and clapped their home grown hero who waved from an open top bus.
Taylor won against José Ramírez in a Las Vegas fight back in May to become undisputed super-lightweight champion of the world.
He floored Jose Ramirez twice, becoming only the fifth man and the first Briton to claim the WBO, WBA, IBF and WBC titles simultaneously since the four-belt era officially began in 2004.
He has recently said that he wants his next fight to be on home soil, either at Edinburgh Castle or Easter Road.
Taylor was welcomed home the day after the fight with crowds surrounding his car as he entered the small town, but due to isolating and Covid restrictions, his parade was delayed.
