Josh Taylor Signs Up For The World Boxing Super Series.


Undefeated WBC Super-Lightweight Mandatory Josh ‘The Tartan Tornado’ Taylor from Edinburgh, Scotland is ready for the 140lb edition of the World Boxing Super Series.

 

“I am delighted to have had to the opportunity to join the competition,” said Taylor. “It’s a great chance for me to become world champion with multiple organisations. It is also a great honour to fight for the Ali trophy. In honour of the greatest boxer of all times.”

 

Known as the ‘The Tartan Tornado’ for his all-action style 27-year-old Taylor (13-0, 11 KOs) turned professional in 2015 after a successful amateur career culminating with the gold medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in the light welterweight division.

 

In June 2018, Taylor fought former WBC Super-Lightweight World Champion, Viktor Postol of Ukraine and scored a dominant unanimous decision win, meaning that he was placed in the mandatory spot for the WBC World Title.

 

Three weight classes will feature in Season II of the World Boxing Super Series with two categories, Bantamweight and Super Lightweight, already announced.
