How Big Does Josh Taylor Think Jose Ramirez Fight Can Be?
Josh Taylor shares his take on just how big a fight with Jose Ramirez can be.
Fight fans have been wanting to see a true title unification bout between Taylor and Ramirez. Taylor is the WBA (Super) and IBF Light-Welterweight Champion, while Ramirez holds the WBC and WBO gold. One holdup with the bout is the fact that Jack Catterall is the mandatory contender for the WBO Championship.
Speaking to BBC Scotland, Taylor discussed just how big he thinks a fight with Ramirez will be.
“It’s a massive fight. Outside the heavyweights – Joshua, Fury and Wilder – and maybe Canelo’s next fight, I think it’s one of the biggest fights in boxing. It doesn’t happen often in the game that you get a fight for all the belts. I do think it’s one of the biggest fights in boxing at the minute, a mouth-watering fight. There’s only one winner though and that’s me. That’s why I signed with Top Rank because all these fights should be easy to make. They’ve also said fighting in Scotland is not off the table, so that’s what I want to do.”
Taylor is set to put his gold on the line against Apinun Khongsong on September 26. The action will be held inside the BT Sport Studio in London, England. This will be Taylor’s first defense of the WBA (Super) Title and second defense of the IBF gold.
Ramirez is coming off a majority decision victory over Viktor Postol back on August 29. It was his fourth defense of the WBC Title and his first defense of the WBO gold.
