SCOTTISH fighter Josh Taylor is “100 per cent” confident he can knock out undefeated Regis Prograis during their super-lightweight unification bout at the O2 Arena on Saturday.

Taylor won the IBF title in his last fight, while Prograis holds the WBA belt, while this bout is also the final of the division’s World Boxing Super Series for the Muhammad Ali Trophy.

With an impressive record of 15 wins from 15 fights, including 12 knock-outs, the Prestonpans-born boxer feels he can do the same against Prograis.
