    Josh Taylor next fight 11/11/17

    See he's fighting Miguel Vazquez at the Royal Highland, this is a good step up for him, he was world champion for a few years and has been in with Canelo, something to look forward to

    Really good test for him. Vazquez has been in with guys like Alvarez, Bradley and Prescott.

    If Taylor wins this it's a big statement this early in his career.

    Jeez, Vazquez is probably top of my "do not watch him fight" list, he's a nightmare to watch, clinches constantly, real ugly fighter. Bit of a step up for Taylor though and one he'll do well to win. Vazquez is probably shot now though IMO.

    Great fight for Josh, think he'll do the business.

    Does anyone know when the first fight on the undercard is? Can't find it anywhere online.

    I'm in the unallocated seats so want to get there sharpish. Doors open at 5 but that seems a bit too early.

    Vasquez isn't your typical Mexican stylist. He's a move, ambush and spoil type. He's very tough like your typical Mexican though. He's never been stopped but he doesn't possess one punch power so Taylor doesn't need to worry much in that department. I remember Vasquez was voted one of the worst boxers to watch in some poll I read a few years back. I have however read he's been more aggressive since moving up to light welterweight. The safe bets Taylor on points but I have a feeling Taylor will stop him late.

    Also looking forward to watching Lee Mcgegor on the card. Another Edinburgh lad who recently turned pro signing up with Cyclone promotions. He's meant to be a real talent. I think his fights to be shown on Spike tv.

    Yeah, was fairly busy. Weigh in today was heaving and Josh looks in absolutely great shape as usual. Canít wait to see him, Lee and Jason go through their opponents tomorrow night.

    Easton is a great fighter to watch, he always wants to get stuck in. Discipline might be a problem as he moves up in class, but I like what I see.

    That was a superb boxing match, some of these punches from Easton would have knocked some boxers out but fair game to the other guy he took every punch and still wanted more, great stuff.

    Absolutely mate. They make them tough in Niddrie, but that Czech guy was tough as nails. Easton has the boxing world at his feet if he works on his game a bit.
