In a recent interview with SiriusXM Boxing, Anthony Taylor didn’t shy away from talking about his opponent.

“Like the great Clubber Lang says, he comes forward, he’s tailor-made for me. He’s not impressive he only has the big last name. That’s all he has, and he only has five inches on me… What he does is nothing special. I’ve seen his opponents that he’s fought. I’ll beat every single opponent of his. I’ll knock him out in the first round. Tommy is not special.”
