Taylor vs Baranchyk

Fighting: Boxing
Josh Taylor - Ivan Baranchyk 
Saturday (18 May) 20:00 (GMT 0) 
The officials looked a bit confused as local hero Josh Taylor (14-0-0, 12 KOs) stepped off the scales. Since weighing in kilograms in Scotland, it was initially not noticed that Taylor was about one hundred grams above the weight limit of 140 pounds (63.503 kg). Finally, the 28-year-old top boxer from the island had to be weighed again - this time without underpants. That was enough to bring the weight after all. 

Opponent Ivan Baranchyk (19-0-0, 12 KOs), who enters the race as IBF World Champion in Super Lightweight, had no problems. He was well below the limit. In the comparison, the boxer poisoned again a little, with nothing extraordinary happened more. It will be interesting to see if Taylor will go into battle due to weight problems. A rise to welterweight seems to make sense in the near future.
