Boxing Fight: Josh Taylor’s promoters have confirmed that a world title defence against Jose Zepeda is in the works for the Scotsman’s next fight.

Taylor had to renounce his WBA super-lightweight title over the weekend due to the governing body’s required criteria, but the Scottish star is now poised to defend his WBC, WBO, and IBF titles against WBC mandatory challenger Zepeda.

Todd Duboef, President of Top Rank, told Sky Sports: “In October, Zepeda had a fight of the year performance against Baranchyk, as well as a first-round KO of Vargas.

“These factors together have won him a required position in Josh’s WBC championship.

“We are working with both teams to put this fight on next.”
