Josh Taylor has weighed in six pounds lighter than death-threatening world title challenger Teofimo Lopez, who scaled exactly at the 140 lb light-welter limit.

The odds on a huge Tartan Tornado victory shortened still further with this proof of his hard training and prime fitness.

Saturday's title bout marks Taylor's first return to the ring since his controversial victory overEngland's Jack Catterall almost 16 months ago.
