The dust is beginning to settle following today’s big fight in London, where Josh Taylor won a majority decision over Regis Prograis to unify the IBF and WBA junior welterweight titles and claim the Ali Trophy as winner of the World Boxing Super Series tournament.

The fight is already being heralded as one of the year’s best, as the two top fighters lived up to their hype and put on a hell of a battle at the O2 Arena, with both Taylor (16-0, 12 KO) and Prograis (24-1, 20 KO) proving to be genuine top-tier talents.
