    Yes, he's no1 now.
    Before Sat I had Warrington no1 but Taylor now has the spot, with his win over prograis.

    Yes.

    What has smith done to be considered p4p? He beat a shot groves, beat a kick boxer and was made to look bad against skoglund.

    Think he could be but he’s fought no one to be regarded as such

    Absolutely, no doubt about it. By quite a margin as well.

    Smith is the forgotten man, wasting his best years not doing much. No disrespect to Ryder but comon, he should be fighting at elite level.But you watch he will never fight anybody of note. I have to give McGuigan credit he stretches his fighters. They fight the best. Even when he had Frampton, same thing. Taylor will go for Ramirez next.

    Yes, but I think Billy Joe and Tyson Fury are better boxers. They just haven't done anything in the last year that justifies putting them over Taylor who has got a great run of wins.

    Tyson passes him out if he beats Wilder in the rematch, BJS passes him out if he beats Canelo next May

    Warrington is only 1 top win from overtaking taylor.
    If he was to get the unification with Stevenson and beat him to unify and Taylor doesn't beat anyone of note before that, id put Warrington back into no1.

    Fair point. Either way, If Taylor beats Ramirez it solidifies his 1 spot.

    It does seem that it's only Taylor and Warrington who want to push themselves to fight the best, to see how good they really are themselves.

    Seems so. Really disappointed with Calum Smiths's non-progress. Add BJS to that also.

    Most definitely. To have unified after 16 fights is an outstanding achievement.
