About The Event

After just twelve professional outings, Taylor has already boxed in each of the home nations as a pro, as well as three times in the USA on big world title bills. Not only has he headlined several cards before millions of viewers live on Channel 5, but the Prestonpans native has also boxed live on Showtime in the USA at the home of boxing, the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Though by far the biggest fight of his career to date, Taylor will be relishing the opportunity to take another significant step towards world title glory by overcoming Ukraine’s Viktor Postol on June 23rd.

“What a superb fight we should have on June 23rd. Josh Taylor truly is the real deal, and that shows when he’s fighting someone as talented and experienced as Viktor Postol in just his 13th fight," said promoter Barry McGuigan.

"We feel that this is the perfect final test for Josh before he challenges for world honours, and Viktor Postol will certainly not being coming to Glasgow to roll over.

“Both men are fresh, full of desire and ready to put it all on the line on June 23rd. This should be a cracker!”
