Josh Taylor defended his WBC silver super lightweight title in devastating fashion as he annihilated opponent Nicaraguan Winston Campos inside three rounds at the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow, Scotland on Saturday night.
The bigger man Taylor imposed himself on Campos from start to finish landing sharp and hurtful head and body punches right from the first bell, Campos did let his hands go and tried to make an impact on his opponent but it became clear very quickly that this was a mismatch and he was outgunned and out skilled by his technically superior opponent, Josh Taylor.
In the second round, Taylor finally broke through with two left hooks to the side of Campos’ head that dropped him to the canvas for a knockdown, with a minute left of the round Taylor inflicted more damage on Campos dropping him again with a barrage of punches against the ropes, somehow Campos survived the round.
In the third it was over within the first minute as Campos went down after appearing to turn his back slightly on Taylor, the referee Victor Loughlin had seen enough of the mismatch and waved the contest off.
Josh Taylor moves to 12 wins, 11 by knockout and is quite possibly Britains most exciting prospect right now, following the fight Josh Taylor stated he would love to fight Mickey Garcia in the very near future.
