The weigh-ins for Jose Ramirez vs. Josh Taylor have wrapped up and it ended with some intensity.
Ramirez and Taylor are set to go one-on-one to determine the undisputed junior-welterweight champion. Ramirez is the WBC and WBO titleholder, while Taylor is the WBA, IBF, and The Ring Champion.
The weigh-ins have commenced and both men hit the 139.6-pound mark. That makes their championship bout official. Things got testy between the two during the staredown as words were exchanged. Ramirez upped the intensity as he wasn’t appreciative of Taylor’s trash-talking during their first face-to-face at a pre-fight press conference.
Ramirez vs. Taylor will be airing on ESPN and on FIGHT SPORTS in over 30 countries.
