Josh Taylor KOs Ryan Martin to earn IBF world title shot
The Prestonpans boxer won in style in front of a passionate Glasgow crowd.
Scotland's Josh Taylor stopped Ryan Martin in the seventh round of their World Boxing Super Series quarter-final to set up a shot at the IBF world title.
Taylor dominated from start to finish at Glasgow's Hydro and stopped the American to stretch his perfect record to 14 professional fights .
The super-lightweight has now lined up a semi-final fight against IBF champion Ivan Baranchyk.
Should he defeat the Belarusian, he would fight for the WBA title in the final.
Taylor said: "I am very happy with the way the performance went tonight.
"I knew I was going to win the fight.
"Credit to Ryan but the fight was easy for me, I never got out of second gear.
"I'm ready for this next fight. This is me just getting started.
"I'm 100 per cent confident and I don't think there is anyone going to stop me."
