LESS
than two weeks after the World Boxing Super Series provided one of the fights
of the year with its 140lb final, the tournament may just go one better with
its bantamweight decider.

Yet
while Josh Taylor and Regis Prograis provided a gruelling 12-rounder in London
on October 26, the fight scheduled for tonight (Thursday November 7) in
Saitama, Japan could well be over much quicker.

That’s
because both participants have established a reputation for big punching.
