Josh Taylor tells John Dennen what stablemate Carl Frampton has taught him

WE interviewed Commonwealth Games champion Josh Taylor, now 1-0 as a pro, for this week’s issue of the magazine.

What kind of things have you learned from Carl Frampton?
Just be ready to punch. His feet are always in a great position, so I like to watch his feet when he’s on the pads or bags. The way he moves his head. His handspeed’s unbelievable so I just like to watch him. He just settles down that little bit, because he’s lighter than me, the way he settles down and moves his head – in the amateurs as well it’s upright and fast. So that little bit of movement and timing, it’s great to watch. I could watch him train all day.
