BREAKING NEWS: Josh Taylor In World Title Eliminator

Taylor To Fight Viktor Postol On June 23rd In Glasgow!

By

IntuBoxing is pleased to announce that rising British prospect, Josh Taylor's hard work has finally been recognized and he will fight Viktor Postol in Glasgow on June 23rd.

Taylor is, without doubt, one of the hottest prospects not only in Britain but in the world. But make no mistake, whilst we have seen the Commonwealth Gold medalist  glide through the professional super-lightweight ranks. In Postol, he faces his toughest test to date. In just twelve professional fights we have seen Taylor smash through the likes of Dave Ryan, he brought Ohara Davies back to earth in a big way and he's beaten a former world champion in Miguel Vasquez. He was the first to stop him too!

In Postol he fights a man that as of January 2018 was still ranked by The Ring Magazine as the second best fighter in the division. Postol boasts wins over Hank Lundy, Yvan Mendy, Lucas Matthysse and DeMarcus Corley. But his ascension came to a shuddering halt when he was widely outpointed by Terence Crawford. But that was all the way back in July 2016. Since then Postol has only been in the ring once, winning a unanimous decision against an unknown Jamishibek Najmiddinov.

So activity and momentum are firmly in the corner of Taylor.

The fight will air on channel 5 as part of their deal with Cyclone Promotions.
