On Saturday night in London, Josh Taylor and Regis Prograis were fighting for the right to claim the title of unified WBA and IBF super lightweight champion, as well as World Boxing Super Series winner. Ultimately, Scotland's Taylor survived this absolutely brilliant, thrilling match of undefeated powerhouses, becoming a unified champ at his American opponent's expense.
The Taylor-Prograis fight promised fans two utterly dominant forces with elite boxing skills, and it did not disappoint. It could potentially rival Errol Spence's win over Shawn Porter for fight of the year by the time all's said and done.
Nevertheless, Taylor has a lot to look forward to after this victory, as this opens up the door to far larger paydays in the future, especially if a super-fight against fellow champ Jose Ramirez can materialize.
