      • 50/50 fight

        It’s going to be great while it lasts!

        This is what boxing is all about, 2 champions in their prime fighting each other. Canyellow, take note!

  • This is gonna be one heck of an exciting fight. I’m gonna have to give the edge to Ramirez, but wont be surprised if Taylor is victorious. This is one of those fights that make boxing look good.

  • This one should be very close and a very entertaining fight. I see Taylor having the edge. Would like to see the winner fight Teofimo Lopez

  • Finally an excellent matchup the fans want to see. You gotta give the credit to Josh Taylor for fighting the best competition. If he can win this he should be locked-in p4p #1. He’s good for Boxing

    • You can’t be P4P number 1 unless you destroy guys in your weight class for a while similar to GGG. Or move up in weight and bring that power up. Too many fighters get over hyped for P4P. Errol Spence for 1.

      • I like ES too for that spot. But he def not the first to beat Danny Garcia or Sean Porter. Those guys are at the top but not the best. Not many in the US are familiar with Josh’s resume is why ES would get the nod.

      • You’re a funny guy. Your pick literally just contradicted your entire post. I’ve got Inoue#1 precisely because he’s done exactly what you said in your post, and which is the opposite of what Errol Spence has done.

  • Can’t wait for this scrap! Hoping Ramirez wins and faces Crawford. Hopefully Crawford gets Paqman and wins against him and Ramirez and will undebatably be best at 147 forcing Spence to actually fight.

    • But Ramirez will lose in this fight. and Crawford won’t get Taylor coz he will fight Teofimo afterward…

  • This could be the “Undisputed year”
    Taylor vs Ramirez
    Jermell vs Castaño
    Fury vs Joshua
    Canelo vs BJS/Plant
    Let’s see if all the other fights can be arranged.

  • This is great. Exactly what we want, undisputed fights. should be a good one

  • Deserving or not, it wouldn’t be all that shocking if Broner were to get a shot at the undisputed 140 pound crown with another win or two, assuming he gets down to that weight. He’s still somewhat marketable, and Ramirez/Taylor can make some money off of that fight. Broner is probably on the radar of the promoters now that he’s back. It doesn’t take much for some fighters.

  • Finally! I got Taylor winning this one my clear decision. Ramirez is too flat-footed of a pressure fighter and Taylor is fast off the counter with good pop. Good fight though.
