Josh Taylor revealed he was super confident of beating Ohara Davies at Braehead.

The highly-rated boxer from East Lothian stopped his London-based opponent to take the WBC silver super lightweight title.

And he revealed that he was super relaxed going into the 12-round contest.

He said: “In the changing room I am usually tight with nerves but I was so calm.”

Taylor admitted that Davies tagged him with his jab in the first round and added: “His jab was quite sharp then I started using my feet.

“My first line of defence was always going to be my feet and he could not hit me.

“He didn’t seem to have a plan B and know what to do. Then he started with the verbals to try and get me into a fight.

“I was very comfortable and I wish him all the best for the rest of his career.

“I didn’t think he would quit after giving it so much mouth and talking on social media.”

He added: “I think he was shocked by the power I have and the speed. I am not a one punch knockout person but I can punch hard enough.”
