    I like Prograis a lot, I have concern about him against Taylor. I think he wins but Taylor is very, very solid. This is a high risk fight for both Prograis and Taylor, not easy work for either

    Not close to comparable.

    Prograis can box though, a little under the radar but he gave Abel Ramos, Flanagan & Relikh boxing lessons. Ramos is generally in wars but Prograis controlled him very well.

    But those guys aren't Taylor either.

    Great fight. It's the most excited I've been a while for a fight. Styles mesh well, it'll be technical, tactical & a war in one.

    Very underrated in terms of actual skills. He can box.

    No one who has ever watched Flanagan fight would have called him a skilled boxer, or compared him to Taylor...

    You know it's a proper fight when there's genuine interest on both sides of the Atlantic.

    Im not a fan of Prograis and not really sold on him yet.
    Taylor on the other hand is a natural.
    Skills pay the bills my friends.

    For me its a 50/50 and the winner goes into the top 10 P4P.

    Yeh me too; totally stoked this fight got made in the end. Awesome match up. I’m picking Taylor but it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if the super confident Prograis gets the win by showing another level.

    Analogy: Taylor is to 140 what Smith is to 168. (perhaps ?)

    Flanagan was relatively feather fisted at LW let alone SLW...

    Taylor is levels above anyway. I have this down as a 50/50, maybe a 60/40 for Taylor with the fight in the UK but Regis has never boxed anyone like Taylor and the same goes for Josh, even though he has faced the better opposition.

    Not a ludicrous assertion actually.
