    He's just beat something like 4 world class opponents who were unbeaten in his last 6 fights.

    He won the WBSS tournament and he has unified all belts in his division barely dropping a round, bar the WBSS final.

    He's miles ahead of BJS level, when you compare like for like performances. BJS scraped through numerous opponents no where at the level of Taylor's opponents.

    We get it, you don't like him. You need to show some impartiality though.

    Taylor's wins over Ramirez and Prograis are better than any win on Saunders record.

    He only drew with prograis and Ramirez is nothing special. No, Billy is more talented by far. I can't see Taylor ever being competitive with the world's number 1 pound for pound. Can you?

    Well it's hard to say as the number 1 p4p isn't in his weight class but it's not like Canelo's some untouchable beast, as well as getting schooled by Floyd he lost clearly to Lara and GGG (first fight) and has been in many other competitive fights.

    I agree Ramirez isn't particulary special but he's still a very good fighter and is certainly better than Ryder, Akavov and Coceres who BJS struggled with.

    Good points. Agreed about everything except Ramirez bring better than Ryder. Ryder is good. Obviously we're not comparing like with like also because Taylor is always fully fit, bjs often is in disgraceful shape, and still wins....

    How the **** do you put Billy Joe Sinus above Josh Taylor? I have no bias either way (unlike yourself, obviously) and I can state quite categorically that Taylor has already eclipsed BJS achievements, in far fewer fights and, barring Canelo, against far better opposition.

    And don't give me any crap about BJS being a two weight world champion when he got the WBO strap out of a Xmas cracker.

    Also, BJS has definitely exceeded and eclipsed JT in the 'I'm a sore loser with a giant chip on my shoulder' stakes.

    I actually like BJS but, the brown nosing of him by some of his hardcore fans is becoming quite disturbing since getting his face caved in.

    Tank in the same shape, all other factors being equal, BJS is a better boxer than Taylor. Nicer person too.

    He's at the wind-up.there is no valid argument he can present to back up his claim.so best to ignore the troll.

    Yes granted Saunders has been out of shape several times but that's his own fault and he seemed fit enough for Coceres, Akavov and Isufi who he didn't exactly walk through.

    You'd do well not to ignore big Len, and your chums too. The reason I can get away with the odd spoof like this is because I can back it up. Big Len knows boxing. He knows it better than you do. Bear that in mind. Ask any of the senior posters on here. In the long run big Len can afford to spoof, cos almost invariably he gets proven right. Stick around long enough and you'll see that.
