    Timestamped, Josh Taylor talking about how he put Prograis in a headlock in a casino and says Prograis didn't know what to do. (EDIT: timestamp not working, it's at the 8-minute mark).

    Throwback to Fury-Wlad and the classic sauna story:

    Maybe the WBC can make a Sauna and Casino Franchise belt in the near future.

    I've watched the full video. Taylor was like speaking out of a script. The part he said "I can see right through your bravado" was just pathetic and so was the headlock story. He was really desperate to intimidate Regis. Fury's story was actually better than this. He had felt something and wanted to tell it. I don't think Taylor even believes what he said. Prograis was very calm and confident throughout. I didn't really have a favorite until I saw this but now it's all Prograis for me.

    Regis won that argument the moment he said he was talking to Josh's mum and sister and sitting at a table with the whole family. Eddie taking boxing promotion to a new level.

    Regis is definitely a slick, cool customer very good at expressing himself. He’s got the gift of the gab.

    Taylor for me is a real hard nut. There were moments there where he really came across unhinged. He’s real tough guy.

    I quite enjoyed that Gloves are Off and usually they come across quite corny.

    I thought the face off was pretty good. Both guys want to prove they are the best, both are very skilled. Regis loves the sport, studies older fighters and their training all the time. I'm from New Orleans so i may be a little bias but he really represents the sport well. Going to be a great fight but I see Regis showing that once again he is on another level. I can see some big money fights in his future soon.

    This face-off is awful. You can tell they respect each other and don't have any hatred. The Davies/Taylor beef was way better as it was real.

    ‘I was prepared to die in that sauna’

    This has to be Fury’s greatest ever line
