Following the European Qualifying Event in Trabzon, Turkey, the ACB Lochend boxer qualified for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, losing to number two seed Domenico Valentino.
Taylor became the first lightweight Scottish boxer to qualify for the Olympics since Dick McTaggart, who won a gold medal in Melbourne in 1956 and a bronze in Rome at the following games. He reached a Commonwealth Games final again in 2014, this time at light welterweight. Taylor won the gold medal, defeating Junias Jonas of Namibia in the final.

Taylor started his professional career in June 2015, signing with Barry McGuigan's Cyclone Promotions, and is trained by Shane McGuigan. Taylor made his debut in July 2015, defeating Archie Weah with a second round technical knockout.
On his seventh fight, Taylor picked up the Commonwealth light welterweight title by beating Dave Ryan with a round 5 stoppage. Ryan went down twice over the course of the bout. Ryan had previously held the title between 2014 and 2015.
