    What is Khongs Song ? is it the funky gibbon ? or the King of the swingers ?

    Is Josh Taylor a little overhyped over here or is it just me? Don't get me wrong he is a decent boxer, but people seemingly go a bit overboard in gushing praise of him.
    He's no doubt number 1 in a pretty limited division. He just about got by Prograis in a close fight (I actually scored it to Prograis by a point), and while he probably as the beating of Ramirez if they face each other there are better fighters in the divisions around him.

    If the main 3 boys in the lightweight division moved up, or Josh went in with the welterweights he'd be in trouble.

    It is just you, Josh Taylor has proved himself as the best and few British fighters can say they have been the best at their weight. What more could he do to prove himself to you?
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    I always like the mystery guys billed a big punchers brought in for a stars home showcase. Khongsong pulled perfect brick putting Kondo to sleep and the guy has a little awkward swagger. Still though Taylor is many levels above and a bit of the 'pressure' for Ramirez build is off for now. I came out of Ramirez v Postol wanting a rematch more than wanting a Taylor showdown . Wondering if Arum feels same

    I've said he's seemingly the best, in a somewhat limited division though. He just happens to be between 2 divisions where there are some super elite boxers. I'm not sure he has the beating of the likes of Lomachenko, Davis, Errol Spence or Crawford. I'm not saying I've seen people say he would beat these guys, but he gets enough high praise that he should be able to mix it at that kind of level.

    For me, I'm not sure he is quite up there. Would be happy for him to prove me wrong mind. Lots of great match ups around those weights.
