Josh Taylor vs Jose Ramirez- A heated rivalry

Starting from the press conference to the media interactions, Taylor and Ramirez have taken brutal shots at each other. This is because they both want to get inside the other’s head and have a psychological advantage as they box for the undisputed gold. Furthermore, both parties will look to maintain their undefeated streaks on May 22.

As Taylor, who is a southpaw, will face Ramirez, who is an elite orthodox, the fight will seemingly be a clash of styles.

The undefeated champions have demolished every other contender at the super-lightweight division. So, they are the most viable opponents to each other. The champions will box in a 12-round headliner later tonight at the Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas.

We might see one pugilist’s undefeated record go away. On the flip side, the other boxer would depart with all four 140 lbs titles, along with the bragging rights.
