IGNORE what Dereck Chisora has to say about Saturday’s (October 26) World Boxing Super Series (WBSS) superlightweight final between Josh Taylor and Regis Prograis at London’s O2 Arena. Forget the fact that Taylor and Prograis are not big men or big names, and forget, too, what Chisora said about the Muhammad Ali trophy, the prize for the victor, and the WBSS tournament as a whole.

Because, where this fight is concerned, Chisora is right in only one respect: Taylor vs. Prograis is completely at odds with recent trends – thankfully.

It features two talented and respectful individuals focused solely on success and has been made on the basis of competition rather than due to some manufactured rivalry. It is a fight, not a personality contest, a throwback to how things used to be. It recalibrates the hypesubstance scale and gives hope to those who refuse to sell their soul and join the circus. Best of all, it comes at a time when fights like this are very much needed.
