Josh Taylor: “I can’t wait to go back and fight at the Hydro on Saturday for the first time since the Commonwealth games. I’ve got some great memories from fighting there as an amateur and it’ll be special to return at the top of a bill this weekend.

“Obviously, I had nearly a full camp preparing for a different fighter in Humberto Soto, but I feel confident that I’ll be able to adapt to Winston Campos. He’s taller, he’s a southpaw and he’s dangerous, but I’m feeling great and there’s only one winner. It might take me a couple of rounds to adjust to his style, but I think the stoppage will come.”

Barry McGuigan: “We’re in for a terrific night of action on Saturday at the Hydro. After Soto pulled out with injury, I was grateful for Campos and his team accepting the fight, and the main event should be a good test for Josh. Campos hasn’t lost in almost five years, and he’ll come forward and try and put the pressure on.

“There’s also some stellar action on the undercard. Jason Easton vs. Glenn Foot could be a Fight of the Year contender, and the Charlie Flynn vs. Ryan Collins rematch should catch fire too. Chantelle Cameron defends her belt against former world title challenger Myriam Dellal, and keep an eye out for Lee McGregor too who steps up in his first eight rounder!”

Winston Campos: “I know that Josh Taylor is a good fighter, but I have fought better guys than him. I will look to hunt him down from the first bell. I want him to know that he is in for a fight. Let’s hope Josh wants to fight too and we can give the fans a war. I feel strong, I feel aggressive and I think that belt is going back with me to Nicaragua!”

This huge night of championship boxing on Saturday March 3rd is labelled as ‘Scotland’s Finest’ and will indeed feature the brightest lights in Scottish professional boxing on a stacked undercard.

Edinburgh’s undefeated Jason Easton (11-0-0) will box Sunderland’s Glenn Foot (21-3-0) for the vacant Commonwealth super lightweight championship.

Motherwell’s 2014 Commonwealth Games gold medallist Charlie Flynn (10-0-1) and Irvine’s Ryan Collins (13-2-1) face off once again for the vacant Celtic lightweight title in what is sure to be fiery rematch following some bad blood between the two Scottish contenders since their first fight at the SSE Hydro last year.

Scotland’s former amateur star Lee McGregor (2-0-0) makes his third start as a professional on March 3rd when he features in an eight-round contest on the big Hydro card. The exciting McGregor will be looking to make huge strides in 2018.

Undefeated IBO World lightweight champion Chantelle Cameron (5-0-0) will make her first defence of her belt against France’s highly rated and experienced Myriam Dellal (15-7-3).

Edinburgh’s undefeated Iain Trotter (5-0-0) will box Glasgow’s Marc Kerr (11-1-0) for the vacant Scottish Middleweight title on the big Hydro bill. Elsewhere on the card, Glasgow’s undefeated Scottish super bantamweight champion Joe Ham (13-0-0) will feature in a six-round contest and Glasgow’s undefeated Gary Rae (5-0-0) boxes in an four-round super bantamweight contest.
