The first staredown between champions Jose Ramirez and Josh Taylor has taken place.
Top Rank Boxing held a pre-fight press conference on Thursday to hype up the title unification bout between Ramirez and Taylor. That championship scrap is set to go down this Saturday night, May 22. It’ll emanate from Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Once Ramirez and Taylor were done taking questions, it was time for them to go face-to-face. The two have mutual respect but it’s clear there is some competitive tension. You can watch a clip of the staredown above.
Ramirez vs. Taylor will be airing LIVE on the major ESPN network and on FIGHT SPORTS in over 30 countries.
