JOSH TAYLOR mocked opponent Regis Prograis for struggling to make the weight for their super-lightweight unification bout at the O2 Arena on Saturday.

American Prograis, the WBA and WBC champion, needed to take off his shorts before making the 10-stone limit, having initially weighed in at one ounce over.

Scotland’s IBF champion Taylor, who weighed in seven ounces under, told Sky Sports: “I made it easy, he looks like he’s on his feet, dead. He’s getting planted tomorrow. He’s getting planted.
