    I have really gone off Taylor recently TBH. This is a great fight and I think how tight Taylor is getting at 140 will be a factor.

    Of course there are, Jürgen. (But Josh isn't one of them.) I'm surprised you see this as a 50_50 fight. I don't. I thing Regis wins widely. I see Taylor missing a lot and taking punishment, tiring badly and getting decisively beaten.

    This fight will either be a classic or a complete stinker

    fast hands Taylor against hard hitting awkward counter puncher prograis you’d think on paper we are in for a treat

    I’m favouring prograis but not by much

    I think it’ll be a fascinating fight, mate. I’ve said it several times but I think we’re gonna see that Prograis is a very special fighter. There’s plenty of torso for him to land on, and he’s a very accurate counter puncher. I think he can stay out of the storm and steal more rounds.

    it could be a factor no doubt, but Regis has only gone the 12 round distance once and that was against turbo terry and let’s be honest Regis was very comfortable in that fight.

    how will prograis gas tank hold up when he’s got someone hitting him back making him think and also in front of a massive partisan crowd.

    imo Regis will have a lot more success or at least more openings against Taylor, turbo is an awkward southpaw so no surprise it went the distance

    Why you gone off him? Cause he’s not trying to be liked and playing the media game? I’m Going to assume that you are one of many people who want AJ To be less fake and more real, just like josh Taylor

    I've changed my prediction on this a few times and that's just today.

    Im starting to swing this way as well Len.
    I had it even at first but I'm starting to favour Regis as we've got closer.
    @velagod brought up the subject of the partisan crowd, which to be fair can play a big part on fight night but I just don't see it bothering Regis, he's too coolheaded and confident to be dragged into that imo

    Regis will have to be a very special fighter to do what you state above.

    Having watched Taylor v Baranchyk live, cannot see how a fighter will win a wide decision up against the handspeed of Taylor. Baranchyk was on him all night but Taylor picked him off with very quick combinations.

    I do give Taylor a good chance of winning this fight but have a feeling that this is not going the distance which suits Regis.

    Taylor is going to be Scotland's finest for years to come win or lose this fight.

    Great to see 2 unbeaten fighters getting it on with no fear of losing the 0

    That makes sense ok. But how tight is Josh at the weight? Body shots could play a big part.

    He did not make the weight first time against Baranchyk so should be tight again - certainly would not be betting on this fight outcome.

    Fantastic fight like most constantly changing my mind how i see the fight going,obviously have seen alot more of Taylors fights but both world class and whoever loses can come again at this level,so many good fights out there for both at 140 and 147 .rooting for josh as may mean more big fights up here in Scotland but have been very impressed with what have seen in prograis and in interviews and behind the scene stuff seems decent guy and very confident. looking forward to a great fight on sat
