Carl Frampton makes a prophetic call ahead of time, now that we can look back on what happened in Josh Taylor vs Ohara Davies.
Josh Taylor stopped Ohara Davies inside the distance last night in what was one of the best displays from a professional boxing prospect in some time.
Body to head and head to body, Taylor broke Davies’ heart and ultimately forced him to turn his back on him before the referee intervened to wave off proceedings.
Before this he also had floored him twice and battered him with a cold, calculating approach that wowed the crowd in attendance.

Prior to the fight a lot of boxers were getting asked their predictions on how the fight would go.
Fellow Taylor team member Carl Frampton obviously was backing his man, but his prediction was literally exactly how the fight unfolded.

The lottery numbers is a good shout from Paddy Barnes. Called to perfection.
Following the fight that was shown live on Channel 5 to a free to air audience in the UK, Davies’ promoter Eddie Hearn mentioned that it was back to the drawing board for Davies and that their gamble simply hadn’t paid off.
What a win for Taylor though. He moves on to undeniably big things in the future.
