Josh Taylor made history by defeating Jose Ramirez to become the undisputed WBC (Super), WBA, WBO, IBF, and The Ring Magazine light-welterweight champion. Taylor is undefeated to date, so the crucial question that arises is 'Will he ever lose?'. Here, we take a look at five fighters who have the potential to defeat Josh Taylor.
The WBC Silver light welterweight champion Jose Zepeda is on a 4-fight win streak. The WBC no. 1 ranked boxer recently successfully defended his title against Hank Lundy by winning the fight via unanimous decision.
The WBA no. 1 ranked boxer Alberto Puello is undefeated to date with a professional record of 18-0 and the WBA interim super lightweight (light-welterweight) champion.
Jack Catterall is a former WBO Inter-Continental light-welterweight champion and currently the no. 1 ranked WBO boxer. He is also undefeated to date, with a professional record of 26-0.
Regis Prograis has a professional record of 26-1. His only loss came via a majority decision against Josh Taylor himself. However, it wasn't a walk in the park for Taylor in their first fight, and if the rematch ever happens, the tables might turn.
Jose Ramirez might have suffered his only loss against Josh Taylor, but he didn't go down easy. If the rematch ever happens the next time, Ramirez will be ready for everything that comes his way.
