Taylor to stop Ryan in rounds 1-3
Coral’s latest bet of the day comes from Friday fight night between upcoming light-welterweight talent Josh Taylor (6-0, 6 KOs) and Dave Ryan (17-9, 4 KOs), as they prepare to collide at the Meadowbank Stadium in Edinburgh.
With the vacant Commonwealth light-welterweight title on the line on Scottish soil, you can back the heavy favourite and home fighter Taylor to stop Ryan inside rounds 1-3 at a highly promising 11/2 price.
The 25-year-old has been making waves since bursting onto the professional scene, following an impressive amateur career, and he looks capable of getting the job done early once again in his latest ring outing. So read on to find out why he’s worth backing for another premature stoppage success…
Early finish in sight for Taylor
Highly-rated Scotsman Taylor is swiftly rising to prominence under the guidance of Barry McGuigan as part of Cyclone Promotions, while the latter’s son and esteemed coach Shane has never lost a fight as a trainer. His list of fighters include two-weight world champion Carl Frampton, George Groves and recently returned David Haye.
It’s Taylor he will focusing on getting through his latest bout though and all signs are pointing towards a seventh successive stoppage win for the home fighter in Edinburgh.
The former 2012 British Olympian and 2014 Commonwealth Games Gold medallist has plenty of amateur pedigree and looks a future star, having not been taken beyond two rounds since turning pro in June last year.
Against his Derby-born challenger, who has nine defeats on his record, Taylor to stop Ryan inside rounds 1-3 at 11/2 looks a tasty price as our latest bet of the day for Friday fight night!
