Since turning professional under the Cyclone Promotions banner back in 2015, Josh Taylor has firmly established himself as one of the finest Super Lightweights in world boxing. ‘The Tartan Tornado’ took just seven contests to claim the Commonwealth title, before adding the WBC Silver strap to his collection with a dominant seventh round TKO victory over domestic rival Ohara Davies.
The Prestonpans native has already boxed in each of the home nations as a pro, as well as three times in the USA on big world title bills. Not only has he headlined several cards before millions of viewers live on Channel 5, but he has also boxed live on Showtime in the USA at the home of boxing, the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The 28-year-old Taylor is now talked about as one of the finest Super Lightweights in the world following his victories over former world champions Miguel Vazquez and Viktor Postol. ‘The Tartan Tornado’ is currently competing in the coveted World Boxing Super Series, with a world title shot looming in the coming months.
