Josh Taylor vs Ohara Davies - Commonwealth & WBC Silver Super Lightweight Title's

FORMER world champion Miguel Vazquez posed Josh Taylor plenty of problems at the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh on Saturday.

Taylor got sucked into brawling on the inside, where the Mexican wanted him. Vazquez flew in head first, catching Taylor’s forehead with the butt. It opened up a bad cut on Taylor’s eyebrow. Angered, Taylor looked to unleash combinations, reaching for Vazquez with his punches. The Mexican came back at him, catching him with particularly effective uppercuts.

Round by round Taylor recovered his composure and sank vicious hooks into the Mexican’s body. Vazquez resisted stubbornly.
