Josh Taylor will defend his IBF and WBA titles against Apinun Khongsong in London on 26 September.

The mandatory bout was originally scheduled for 2 May but was postponed because of Covid-19.

Scottish super-lightweight Taylor is unbeaten in 16 fights, 12 of which have been won by knockout.

The 29-year-old hopes to challenge WBC and WBO title holder Jose Carlos Ramirez if he defeats Thailand’s Khongsong, 25.

Ramirez, 28, has put a move to welterweight on hold until he’s undisputed champion.
