Many fans believed it would be a close fight and that Till offered
a legitimate threat to the throne of Woodley. However, it did not
play out that way. Woodley produced a flawless performance on the
night, not only finishing “The Gorilla” by second-round submission
but also completely nullifying Till’s striking game with the
25-year-old landing only one strike on the champion.
Till recently spoke to his sponsors at Paddy Power and despite the
one-sided loss, says his confidence has not wavered, as he always
expected he’d get beaten at some point in his career.
“My confidence hasn’t changed or taken a knock and I’ll tell you
why — when some guys are on top think they will never get beat, and
then when they do they then lose their confidence because it was
never something they thought would happen to them,” Till said. “I
always knew that at some point I was going to get beat. When you
look at all the greats, the Muhammad Alis, the Mike Tysons, the
Triple Gs, they’re all the best fighters to have ever fought but
they also have losses on their record. Having those losses didn’t
take away from them being the best. Muhammad Ali had five losses.
Does that mean he isn’t considered the greatest of all time? It
certainly doesn’t, and in my opinion, he is and will always be the
greatest of all time. I’m a very happy, content man at the moment
and I’ll be back. You can guarantee that.”
