Josh Taylor vs Viktor Postol
Scotland's Josh Taylor, an Olympian, and an unbeaten prospect, steps up a level, in his backyard, in Glasgow. Taylor takes on former world champion, Ukraine's Viktor Postol, Postol, experienced, and having been in against Terence Crawford.
The fight is very entertaining as both fighters have success, it is competitive, but Postol seems to be winning the fight, seems too experienced as the fight approaches the late rounds, but the younger fighter is able to really rally in the last few rounds, managing to come on strong, and even get a late knockdown, Postol, tough, trying, but Taylor, swinging the momentum in his favour.
The fight goes the distance, it is close, but it seems Taylor may have edged it, especially with the knockdown.
The ring announcer reads out 3 landslide scorecards, announces Taylor as the winner, the verdict, not controversial, but the margins, very much so.
After the fight, Irish boxing legend, father of Taylor's trainer, Barry McGuigan, says Taylor won by 4 or 5 points, and admits the scores were too wide.
Josh Taylor struggles, but proves to be adaptable, goes 12 rounds, gets his best career win so far, beats Viktor Postol, in a great learning fight.
Viktor Postol loses, but seems to have been done a disservice as it goes down as a one sided loss, when he seemed to lose in a fight which was not at all one sided.
