Boxing champ Josh Taylor shares video of impressive living room belt display

UNDISPUTED boxing champ Josh Taylor has shared a video of his impressive living room belts and memorabilia display.

The 30-year-old Scot showed off his huge entertainment unit yesterday by showcasing six allocated slots filled purely with his well deserved belts.

Taylor, from Prestonpans, East Lothian, also made space in his living room for a boxed signed glove from fellow undisputed Scots boxing champ, Ken Buchanan. 

The video shows Taylor’s highly decorated black entertainment centre equipped with a large television in the centre and a long and narrow electric fireplace fitted below. 

On each side of the television are three large shelves, each showcasing a belt with a strip light highlighting them from below. 

Behind each belt there is a mirrored surface reflecting the rest of the fighter’s living room. 

Taylor, who became the undisputed champion of the world on the 22 of May, posted his new layout to Twitter last night writing: “My Living room feature wall is now complete with all the belts home where they belong #visualisation #manifestcomereality #Undisputed”
