Josh Taylor: Ivan Baranchyk world title fight confirmed for Glasgow in May

Scotland's Josh Taylor will contest his first world title fight in Glasgow in May, when he faces IBF super-lightweight champion Ivan Baranchyk. The bout is scheduled to take place at the SSE Hydro on 18 May, with the news coming a day after it had been reported Baranchyk had pulled out of the contest and the World Boxing Super Series. Taylor reached the last four with an seventh-round win over Ryan Martin. The Edinburgh fighter is now undefeated in 13 outings. Should he beat Baranchyk to claim his debut world crown, he will fight for the WBA belt in the final.
