After just twelve fights as a professional Josh Taylor is fast closing in on a world title shot.

The 27-year-old Scot has been matched against the Ukrainian fighter, Viktor Postol, at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on 23 June.

The fight will give the winner the opportunity to fight for the WBC World super lightweight title.

Postol will arrive on these shores as the number-one ranked contender for the title and will provide Taylor with the stiffest test of his career so far.

Publicising the fight, both fighters have taken the opportunity to speak to the media, with Taylor remarking,

“To know I’ll be in line for a world title shot if I get the win has really put the fire in my belly.

“This is definitely my toughest opponent to date. You can expect to see the best Josh Taylor to date.”
