Scottish junior welterweight prospect Josh Taylor will return to action on November 11 in Edinburgh, when he faces former lightweight titleholder Miguel Vazquez in a 12-round main event at Royal Highland Centre, televised by Channel 5 in the United Kingdom.
Taylor (10-0, 9 KO) is the reigning Commonwealth and WBC Silver champion, and is coming off of a very impressive performance on July 8, when he stopped fellow prospect Ohara Davies in the seventh round.
The 26-year-old “Tartan Tornado” is on track to be a serious world contender, and Vazquez (39-5, 15 KO) should be able to test him from a tactical standpoint, as he’s a very crafty, intelligent boxer.
Vazquez, 30, has won four straight since 2016, against mediocre opposition. He lost two of three fights in 2014-15, dropping bouts to Mickey Bey and Argenis Mendez, both controversial. He held the IBF lightweight title from 2010 until 2014, making six successful defenses.
