JOSH Taylor continued his undefeated start to his professional boxing career with a seventh round stoppage of Ryan Martin.

Both men came into the contest in Glasgow with 100 per cent records.

However, from very early in the first round it looked as if there would only be one winner.

Taylor was dominant throughout with body shots and the stoppage came midway through the seventh.

That saw the 27-year-old, from Prestonpans, rock his opponent with a savage left.

Taylor clearly sensed an opportunity and the referee quickly stepped in to stop any further punishment.

It was a well-deserved victory in front of a loud home crowd at the SSE Hydro.

Victory in the final quarter-final of the Super Lightweight section of the World Boxing Super Series ensured Taylor retained his WBC Silver Championship.

Equally importantly, it meant he progressed to the semi-finals of the prestigious competition, where he will meet Ivan Baranchyk.

The Commonwealth Games gold medal winner was quick to thank his fans for making the journey along the M8.
