Boxing: Josh Taylor vs Victor Postol preview


Fight week in Glasgow will include an open workout featuring both Taylor and Postol, plus undercard boxers, at the St. Enoch Centre in the city center at 1 pm on Wednesday, June 20th.

Taylor (12-0, 11 KOs) enters this contest broadly considered the top young talent in British Boxing. A dynamic force of nature devastating his foes with sublime ring skills. Exhibiting excellent hand and foot speed along with piercing power. Clever combinations showcase a fine arsenal of punishing blows. Also displaying a high work rate plus an adroit ability to switch off his base Southpaw stance as needed. Highly nuanced offense highlighted by a crippling body attack. Add in his crafty inside game and you can understand why the Tartan Tornado is wreaking a path of destruction across the 140 lb division.

Postol (29-1, 12 KOs) arrives in the U.K. once a champion determined to reclaim past glory. A rangy well-schooled orthodox technician with elite level experience. Steely and systematic in approach. Operating with an icy manner and stunning lack of emotion. The Iceman from Ukraine more than willing to venture away gunning for fame and fortune. Soon facing this cold and calculated reality check. A bloody reckoning by the North Sea.

The Scotsman holds a huge home country advantage. That crazed crowd surely doing all they can to lift their local luminary. And the pot sweetened even further as a potential World Boxing Super Series berth for Taylor hangs in the balance.
