Sauerland: Baranchyk-Taylor A 'High Probability' For Glasgow

By Elliot Foster

Josh Taylor could be back in Glasgow sooner rather than later.

The WBC Silver super-lightweight champion retained his title with a career-best performance on Saturday night.

Taylor, 27, ousted 25-year-old Ryan Martin in the quarter-final of the World Boxing Super Series at the SSE Hydro, stopping the previously undefeated American talent inside seven rounds, exclusively live on iFL TV in the UK and on DAZN in the States.

And afterwards, it was revealed by the Comosa AG chief boxing officer Kalle Sauerland that they could return to the same venue for ‘The Tartan Tornado’s’ semi-final against Ivan Baranchyk for the IBF title.

“We loved it at the venue and we have an option on it for the semi-final,” Sauerland, who wished Ryan Burnett a speedy recovery following his injury against Nonito Donaire in the other WBSS quarter-final in the bantamweight tournament, told Boxing Scene.

“We will be making an announcement on that in a couple of weeks because there are still some conversations that need to be had.”

Boxing Scene had been informed by members of the Taylor team that Saturday night’s date was held on the proviso that two further dates, likely looking ahead to the last-four and the final of the Muhammad Ali Trophy tournament, were available as options.

“It’s a great place to put boxing,” Sauerland continued. “It was set up for 6,000 and I think we did almost all of those tickets and I think we can go up from there.

“Taylor’s team [Cyclone Promotions] have done a great job already with the events. You see fighters who, throughout their careers, their following get bigger and I think the decision to come onto the platform of the World Boxing Super Series was a bold one but it’s one that ultimately pays off when you win and it’s a high probability that we will see Josh Taylor’s next fight back at the Hydro.”

Where's the money come from to fund this tournament? TV coverage is provided free via internet streaming (which is nice) & advertising appears to be minimal. Okay maybe Saudi Arabia, Japan & Russia have obviously heavily invested, but how can…

[QUOTE=Mister Wolf;19248299]This dude scared to fight somewhere they wont cheat for him.[/QUOTE] Sauerland and the WBSS producers pick the venue, not Taylor. Their aim is to maximise revenue, and as much as I like Baranchyk it's hard to see a…

Ryan Martin froze big time this weekend, the WBSS was far too soon for him in hindsight. I don't think Baranchyk will freeze the same way; I thought Yigit was going to outbox him, but the Swede looked like he…
