    The winner of this unification fight establishes himself as one of the top 140 lbs fighters. Taylor is the boxer with some pop. Prograis is the puncher with more pop.

    If Taylor boxes smart I see a MD with a possible late stoppage. The fight is tonight on DZAN.

    Go, Taylor!

    We also have the possible resurrection of the near dead career of David Price if he beats Chisora who is a gate keeper type who gets paid like a minor star.

    Taylor needs to box the Louisiana Mulatto or he could be counting sheep at some point in the ring as I don't recall anybody having any success against Prograis brawling with him. This will be an interesting bout as the winner will be a star in boxing and could have a huge fight with Ramirez who is coming off an exciting knockout in another unification fight in the 140 pound division.

    PS, Price was rescued by his corner from the inevitable violent ko, Price needs to retire and preserve his brain cells as at this point if he can't beat a domestic gatekeeper type your going nowhere at the world level. He almost reminds me of a poor man's Gerry Cooney.

    Not on DAZN.

    How is the presentation and commentary there from a caste perspective?

    This should be Price's last fight. His resistance to hard punches are zero. Someone, please talk some sense into him.

    Just as I predicted! Taylor wins over 12 rounds.! A majority decision.

    Taylor won this fight fair and square. He forced Prograis to adjust at the midpoint of the fight and even then boxing on the back foot Prograis didn't win the majority of the rounds. There was talk of rematch by the broadcasters, Taylor could try and seek lucrative fights with a Garcia or a 4 belt unification fight with Ramirez. The rematch could be the least lucrative of the 3 scenarios.

    Prograis showed some class by stating that Taylor was the better man. If I am Taylor fight Garcia in Vegas for big money. Garcia no doubt is the A-side, he will determine terms. But it is a 6 figure payday.

    Better than BoxNation, where the old fairy John Rawling always sounds like he's lusting for Negro boxers while being negative and disparaging toward Europeans.

    BoxNations broadcast influence has diminished due to their small budgets for foreign broadcast rights. His broadcast partner sounds more like life partner too....
