“No nonsense” Josh Taylor will embrace the media spotlight and become a”superstar” in his division, says trainer Shane McGuigan.

28, the Scotsman, faces Super Lightweight winner Ivan Baranchyk in May in the World Super Series Semifinals.

“Once you’re in very stimulating fights, folks desire to view it.”

Since turning pro in 2015, Even a Commonwealth Games gold medallist, Taylor has won 12 of the 14 fights.

“You’re going to find that exactly the best of Josh Taylor along with also his personality coming out whenever he is in against people who are looking to take off his head.

“He’s a tough bloke, he is a real tough guy, he’s no crap.

“He’s got the ability to turn into a superstar in his division and in Britain.

“He respects that [the media] is just a big facet of now that the quality of struggles is going up along with also his brand is going up he is going to have to invest in that.

“Carl Froch wasn’t recognised for a very long time period, before end of the career, therefore was Joe Calzaghe.

“Joe Calzaghe never spoke infront of the cameravery, very quiet but his , in the end, prevailed and some one just like Josh Taylor, if we can bring this out of him just a small bit sooner, then that’ll be better for all of us.

Keeping the momentum is key.”
