JOSH TAYLOR feels he will thrive on the pressure after being tipped to challenge for a world title if he gets past the experienced Humberto Soto.

The unbeaten Scot’s second defence of his WBC silver super-lightweight title has been confirmed for the Hydro in Glasgow on March 3 against the former three-weight world champion.

The Commonwealth Games gold medallist made waves across the Atlantic when he became the first man to stop former world lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez in October.
