Josh Taylor: Me vs. Jose Ramirez is one of the biggest fights in boxing

Josh Taylor is training hard for unbeaten mandatory challenger Apinun Khongsong.

WBA, IBF junior welterweight champion will meet the challenger at September 26th. The fight was scheduled to take place a few months ago and pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A victory would lead Taylor in the direction of a full division unification against WBO, WBC champion Jose Ramirez.

Taylor believes the clash with Ramirez, which is being targeted for 2021, is one of the biggest fights in the entire sport.

“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,” Taylor told BBC Scotland.”

“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. To see my name in bright lights at the MGM Grand or Madison Square Garden, every fighter dreams of that. But having a fight at Edinburgh Castle or Easter Road would just be amazing for Scottish sport. Especially a fight at the Castle with that backdrop, it would be an iconic moment in Scottish sporting history.”
