Jones even talked about Taylor’s future post this fight. “I think Josh Taylor moves up. I think after Josh Taylor wins this fight, he goes to 147 pounds. And then who knows, he could fight Terence Crawford. Then that is a huge fight.”

‘The Tartan Tornado’ has 17 wins. But the Ramirez fight is unquestionably his toughest bout to date. Furthermore, this battle is for the undisputed title and Ramirez won’t give it so easy to him. But if Taylor gets past the American somehow, he’ll set himself up for massive fights in the future.
