Josh Taylor wins his first world title after securing points victory over Ivan Baranchyk in Glasgow – Evening Standard

Taylor’s secret to success

This week, Josh Taylor revealed how he stays calm during fight week – cannabis oil.

“I’m sleeping like a baby, which is probably down to the preparations.

“I’m settled in London, I’m not living out of a suitcase in a hotel but with my girlfriend and dog in the flat.

“I’m relaxed, focused and super confident. I can’t wait. I’m taking this CBD oil, so maybe that’s why I am so relaxed. Maybe that’s why I’m so chilled out.

“Joking aside, it does help me relax and focus. I’ve always had trouble sleeping at night, being a bit hyper and going over things, but the last few camps I’ve taken that stuff and it’s really helped me.

“I’m also happier and more settled down south. I can go back to the flat after my sessions in the gym, rather than just hanging about.

“I can walk the dog, go for something to eat, go and have a sleep. I think that’s a key factor.”
