Josh Taylor

The 27-year-old “Tartan Tornado” has lived up to the hype thus far. He has won all 12 of his professional fights and last year became the first man to stop former world champion Miguel Vazquez. Josh Taylor with a record of (12-0, 11 KOs) is coming up as the young invincible boxer. His last outing against the Nicaraguan contender Winston Campos was comfortable fight where Taylor secured a victory on third round.

Online gambling sites in the UK expect him to dominate his guest Viktor Postol in the ring. Yet Postol (29-1, 12 KO) will not give up easily. He has a great desire to put it all on the line. He needs to gain back his pride after he lost his belt in a unification fight with Terence Crawford in July 2016. Postol had only one fight in last two years, but he hopes to have a shot on a world championship title again before it is too late for his age.
