“Somebody’s throwing that towel in because I’m going to stop him guaranteed,” vowed Prograis after trading insults with his rival during the intense stare-down. “Everything is good, I’m going to beat the ***t out of him tomorrow. We were cursing each other, I was saying I was going to stop him, he was saying he was going to stop me. But I’m going to stop him guaranteed.”

Josh Taylor, Scotland, IBF World Champion & WBC Silver titlist, tournament No. 2 seed (63,3 kilo):

“Since this tournament was created I’ve dreamed and envisioned lifting that trophy,” said Taylor.

“I can’t wait to do a number on this mouthpiece, I’m going to shut him up. He’s going to sleep, he’s going back to America with his tail between his legs.”
