The SSE Hydro, Glasgow, Scotland - Junior welterweight Josh Taylor (12-0, 11 KOs) continued his rise with a third round stoppage of late replacement Winston Campos (30-4-5).
Campos stepped in a week ago after former world champion Humberto Soto fell ill and withdrew from the contest.
Taylor was coming off two of his most impressive victories to date in a very banner 2017.
In July, he finally stepped in the ring with his division rival Ohara Davies and scored a solid to TKO win to hand Davies his first career defeat. Some saw Davies as the favorite, but Taylor had few issues on the contest and practically made Davies quit during the stoppage.
And then Taylor came back in November to become the first man to stop former world champion Miguel Vazquez inside the distance. Vazquez, who at one time was regarded as one of the best lightweights in the world, had previously gone the distance with fighters such as Canelo Alvarez, Timothy Bradley and numerous others.
Against Campos it was one-way action and Taylor was way too good for what turned out to be an overmatched opponent.
Taylor started off the fight with his jab. After a few body shots that were well placed, he managed to wobble Campos near the end the round. Campos was lucky that he was tagged as the round was coming to a close.
The fight was nearly over in the second, after Taylor dropped Campos hard with a solid right hand. Campos got to his feet, but he was all over the place and it didn't take long before a second knockdown was scored. He barely made it to the bell as Taylor was looking for the finish.
And then in the third, it was all she wrote. Taylor knew the end was near and he was once again pushing the attack. A third knockdown was scored and the fight was wisely waved off by the referee.
