Barry McGuigan's high hopes for Josh Taylor

Boxing manager Barry McGuigan is confident that Josh Taylor will mark his home professional debut with a win against Adam Mate.

The 24-year-old Commonwealth Games gold medallist takes on Hungary's Mate on Friday night at the Meadowbank Arena in Edinburgh, his first professional bout on home soil.

Taylor won his professional debut against Archie Weah on the undercard of Carl Frampton's world title fight with Alejandro Gonzalez Jr in July.
