    brilliant to hear the lad won that one. not exactly Roberto Duran he was up against but a good pro he was mixing with none the less. Buchanan boxed wi' the best, and could/should have won. all about those low punches or head clashes in those fights that make the difference.
    the guy he was fighting was a world champion for 4 years was he not? not just a good pro

    Boy Easton was fighting was a machine, just kept taking blow after blow. Easton threw everything at him.
    God knows how the guy stayed on his feet. He took so many heavy blows but kept coming back for more. 10 out of 10 for guts.

    For anyone not familiar with Vazquez, ignore the losses on his record, he should only have two at the most, he won the Mickey Bey match by a mile, it was one of the most notorious robberies that year. The Mendez loss, was equally bull****, Most watching had Vazquez winning fairly easily. The other 3 losses are two to Canelo and one to Bradley. No shame there, especially when you consider one of the losses to Canelo was Vazquez's first match, and it was an SD, there was a rematch, and he lost that one by UD. He claimed robbery in both Canelo losses. While he may be BSing, the fact that his matches against Canelo are literally nowhere to be found on the net, gives a degree of credence to his claim. This was a damn good win for Taylor. A win that certainly some who merely glance at his record on Boxrec may underrate, which they definitely should not. Granted Taylor is a LWW, and Vazquez is a LW, that's not a great argument to discredit it, because Vazquez has been campaigning at LWW for his last 4 or 5 matches, and its not like he's wartorn or anything, his style is the epitome of safety first, he rarely takes anything even close to a beating.

    Good performance by JT in a tricky fight. Good booking by McGuigan to put him in against a guy who made him think with his style and forced him to box smart rather than just loading up as he has been able to do previouly. He took a few shots early doors but from about the 4th round he got to grips with him and dominated.

    A fight against Anthony Yigit for the European title, assuming he wins in 3 weeks, would be a cracking fight. If that could be brought to Scotland it should see a huge crowd.

    Don't think that fight would be too hard to make, Ive read an interview with Yigit where he mentions JT beat him in the amateurs and that they had him over for sparring for the Davies fight, seems like a right nice bloke as well

    Watched the fight on TV and was highly impressed. A wee boxing story for the younger ones. Mohammad Ali was on the undercard to aKen Buchanan fight at Madison Square Garden and they had to share a changing room. The bold Kenny draw a chalk line on the floor and said to Ali. "Right mate this is my half and that is your half and dinny be crossing the line".

    superb. good to hear he's got the nonce to do it. Duran, well he was the same...hit him wi' a hammer and Kenny would still be up against it but he had to deal with a real dodgy under the belt blow from Duran. Stone fists, as they called him , probably did not aim below the belt but Buchanan suffered for it on the night, IIRC. NEVERTHELESS WELL DONE jOSH.
    Craig Levein may have once knocked out Graham Hogg, but he'd struggle against Vasquez and I doubt he'd fight on behalf of a Hibby like Josh T.

    Duran was called Manos de Piedra which roughly translates into Hands of Stone

    Roberto Duran was also called 'El Cholo'.

    Some boxers had more than one moniker. Tommy 'The Hitman' Hearns was also called 'The Motor City Cobra'. Arguably the greatest British boxer of all time and definitely the greatest Welsh boxer ever Jimmy 'The Mighty Atom' Wilde also went by the moniker 'The Ghost with the Hammer in his Hands'.

    As well as beng a fantastic boxer Josh is a genuine realy nice young man. I have known him since he was a wee boy as I went o schol with his parents .

    Having his team wear the Action for Alex t-shirts and mention Alex was a touch of class. He also turned up to a fund raising event yesterday and posed for photos for hours.

    In case you dont know the Action for Alex is for Alex Logan, a 5 year old who has a brain tumour and they are trying to raise funds for treatment and for his family so thay can be with him in hospital. Alex is my sister's grandson and its a real tragedy for this family.

    if anyone wants to support just search for #actionforalex.

    Apologies if it seems I am hijacking the thread about Josh but I know Josh wont mind as its something that is close to his heart.
