Best fight I have seen?

Off TV Josh Taylor versus Regis Prograis – a superb battle and a fitting occasion to mark Taylor becoming a unified super-lightweight champion in just 16 fights. With this performance, after winning his first world title earlier in 2019, Taylor was far ahead of the rest of the field for British fighter of the year. Readers of the magazine will know I’m a great enthusiast for amateur boxing. There have been some great amateur bouts I’ve seen in the UK this year, Mark Dickinson vs Ramtin Musah in the Elite national final a particular stand out.
