Unsurprisingly, the May 2nd ESPN+ Glasgow show headlined by Josh Taylor vs. Apinun Khongsong will feature a bevy of rising UK talent, including a pair of British champions, some unbeaten youngsters, and a heavyweight prospect looking to rebound.
All are presently booked against TBA, though there’s a press conference scheduled for Wednesday that could have some more info.
24-year-old Sunny Edwards (14-0, 4 KO), brother of former flyweight champion Charlie, makes the first defense of the British super flyweight belt he claimed last December with a decision over Marcel Braithwaite. Three pounds north, Lee McGregor (8-0, 6 KO) will attempt to move past his questionable decision over Kash Farooq, which saw him unify his Commonwealth belt with Farooq’s British one.
Scotland’s Willy Hutchinson (11-0, 7 KO) and Craig McIntyre (11-0-1, 4 KO) will provide local support alongside Michael McGurk (12-0, 3 KO). Also in store are Troy Williamson (14-0-1, 11 KO) and, most notably, Nathan Gorman (16-1, 11 KO) back in action for the first time since his destructive loss to Daniel Dubois.
