Josh Taylor’s title fight against Jose Ramirez will happen first on May 22. While we are just a few days away from seeing the 140 lbs unification matchup, ‘The Tartan Tornado’ revealed that he has been picking Tyson Fury’s brains.

Taylor connected with the bonuscodebets.co.uk and said, “He’s been giving me little bits of advice, stuff he thinks I could do and things that could work in the fight. He’s been giving me some really good bits of advice.”
