SCOTTISH super-lightweight Josh Taylor is feeling the love in London ahead of his headline contest against fellow unbeaten fighter Regis Prograis at O2 Arena on Saturday.

The pair were put through their paces during a public workout at Old Spitalfields Market and ‘The Tartan Tornado’ was given a fantastic reception in England’s capital.

Edinburgh-born Taylor won the IBF title in his last fight and Prograis holds the WBA and WBC belts, while this bout is the final of the division’s World Boxing Super Series Ali Trophy.
