The phenomenal victory over in America saw Taylor propel himself up boxing’s pound-for-pound list, meaning he is universally recognised as one of the best fighters in the sport today.

His next fight has now been announced – a mandatory defence against the unbeaten Jack Catterall on December 18 in Glasgow.

Ahead of the fight, Taylor told White and Jordan on talkSPORT: “I’m improving all the time.

“I really think every day I’m in the gym I’m improving.

“I feel it’s gonna take a real, real, special fighter to beat me at the minute.

“Unless I have an off-night, a bad at the office, and I don’t get the result I’m after.

“But on my current form and the way I’m feeling at the minute, I feel really, really tough and almost unbeatable.

“No-one’s unbeatable, but it’s gonna take a huge task for somebody to beat me at the minute, the form I feel I’m in.”
