DOUBLE world boxing champion Josh Taylor is to appear in a computer game.

The IBF and WBA World Super Lightweight champion is among the boxers to appear in the new Steel City Inter E Sports boxing club game.

Taylor, who has an unbeaten record of 16-0, took to social media to make the announcement last week.

He said: “This is the first boxing game since 2011 and it looks like it’s going to be awesome.

“I’m definitely going to be going myself in this all the time.”

The 29-year-old is likely to have time on his hands due to the global lockdown, which saw his scheduled bout with Apinun Khongsong cancelled.

The two undefeated fighters were due to meet in Glasgow’s SSE Hydro at the beginning of the month but the bout was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Taylor, who told Courier Sport last week that he would be continuing to train ahead of the sport resuming, was due to make his first defence since becoming a double world champion.

Now living in Haddington, Taylor, originally from Prestonpans, won the IBF World Super Lightweight title with a unanimous points decision victory over Ivan Baranchyk in Glasgow 12 months ago.

Then, in October last year, he picked up another points victory, this time over Regis Prograis to lift the WBA World Super Lightweight title.
