Josh Taylor v Miguel Vasquez Over 9.5 rounds

Boxing - Super Lightweight - 11 Nov 21:00

Vasquez has been a pro boxer since early 2006. He's fought some big names, including Saul Alvarez twice and Timothy Bradley. He's not your typical come forward Mexican, preferring to fight off the back foot, making things very awkward for opponents. He's never been stopped. In fact, the only time he's been down to my knowledge was when he fought Breidis Prescott. Prescott hit him with a jab that caused him to fall backwards, more due to being off balance. He was up immediately and perfectly fine.

Although it feels like he's been around for forever, Vasquez is only 30 years old. He flits from 135lbs to 147ish, but appears to be better suited for 140 and below. This fight will take place at 140lbs. The fact that he's mixed it with guys at 148 (Saul Alvarez) shows you how durable he is. He's not a big puncher himself with only 15 ko's in his 44 fights. He's fought around the world so should be ok with the required travel.

I love Josh Taylor. I think he could and should go down as the best Scottish boxer of all time. He's ko'd 9 of his 10 opponents, only going the distance with Alfonso Olvera, who just so happens to be another Mexican. Tough breed.

I think Vasquez is seasoned and awkward enough to make it the distance in this fight. He won't be marching forward as Ohara Davies did and certainly won't turn his back and quit. Taylor would make a massive statement if he could stop Vasquez. I think he'll be happy with any type of win over such an experienced guy in only his 11th fight. Being in Scotland you'd have to heavily favour Taylor. 1.02 on the straight win is a major no from me though.
