    Who do you see going further and having the better career out of the two?

    Who do you rate as the better Boxer out of the two, and why?

    Taylor seems more athletic and more technically skilled all round but he has a tougher division to conquer. Both still have to go through the chin and heart test. No point in having all that talent if you crumble like Kevin Mitchell. Time will tell.

    Rate both of them and think they have the ability to go all the way - particularly Burnett.

    Both very good.. and both all rounders.. but Taylor has power, Burnett looked like he had power early on but as hes stepped up his power looks average.

    Just asking. Both seem seriously skilled, and I was just wondering what other posters thoughts were.

    Why Burnett over Taylor? Taylor beat on and stopped a proven domestic level teak tough guy who had never been stopped before in only his 7th fight. Burnett's power isn't as impressive as Taylors imo. Do you think Burnett has better skills than Taylor?

    Taylor for me. More skilled and packs greater power.

    Not that tough a division given Crawford is expected to move up to 147 soon. Think Taylor should be at world level in just over a year's time.

    Ryan for me as a greater body of work at ama and ain't a cross over talent
    Taylor looks to have more power but power aint everything ask Floyd
    Trainer will come into it as well same as fighters its the levels andfandf booth is a beast of a trainer


    Just my opinion and there like a55 holes evey bodfbodfy as one


    And good look to both

    Power isn't the be all and end all, but we'll see how Taylor's fairs as he goes up through the levels. Burnett now is beginning to go through the levels.

    Again we'll judge skills against the level of opposition, Taylor looks like he has a serious skillset in the locker but same token with regards to Ryan Burnett in that when Adam Booth is telling people that your the most talented fighter he's ever trained, when he's been involved with the likes of Haye, Groves, Lee & Eubank Jr is a compliment in itself.
