    really impressed with both guys. Honestly, I don't see Teo beating Taylor but I hope that fight gets made It would be a war. Would also love to see Taylor vs Errol or Crawford at 147 honestly say Taylor cracks the top 5 PFP after that performance.

    The city would have been set on fire based on the judges at ringside who were clearly asleep

    It would have been a disgrace if Ramirez was given the decision. Taylor dominated most of the fight. It was 8-4 Taylor plus the KDs.

    Crawford has never fought anyone as good as Taylor and never fights without home advantage so I can't see this happening. If Taylor is to fight Crawford in America he should bide his time and age bud out: beat Catterall, Tank/Teo and then Garcia at 147, take some time to adjust to the weight. Taylor is big at 140 and looked weight-drained the day before, so at 147 he will be heavier, stronger, have more stamina, more punch resistance and punch power. Crawford is almost 34, by the time they would fight under this series of events he would be 35 and on the decline if he isn't already. Taylor would be in his prime and more experienced than he is now. Crawford's record may also look even better by that point: 40-0, officially top 3 "P4P" so Taylor would get more credit for beating him and it would be a much bigger, more hyped fight by then. If Taylor does this he gives himself an excellent chance, though he still needs multiple KD's or a stoppage in the U.S.

    This video stresses me out. I hate combining talking and eating under even normal circumstances, but if there's a hot pizza in front of my face as my undisputed world championship victory celebration, no way am I taking one bite until telling everyone not part of my camp (or hell, even them as well) to GTFO my dressing room so I can scoff in peace. No way I could just casually enjoy my long-awaited junk food with cameras and mics in my face.

    Yeah, that was giving me a degree of agita as well. Eating and enjoying certain foods is sacred to me, and like with films and music, I prefer to be in the proper headspace, and I hate anything that ****s up my flow.:lol:

    Yeah, I definitely think he should take sometime to adjust to the new weight before jumping in with the likes of Crawford. Who did Crawford fight when he moved up?

    At 140

    Thomas Dulomre, followed by Dierry Jean, then Hank Lundy

    At 147

    Horn whose only claim to fame is winning a hometown Robbery of the Year type gift against Manny. Then Crawford fought peg-leg cripple Benavidez who hasn't fought since because of how bad his leg was messed up and then shot Khan

    And the thing is Crawford was rehydrating as much as 18lbs down at 135, 17lbs at 140, and likely as much up at 147 so as he moved up he was still often the heavier guy or at worst weighed roughly the same as his opponents, even up at 147. And he's got a freakish 74'' reach and has never once been at a reach disadvantage in any of his world title fights even up at 147 so it was easier for him to move up and 147 was always his natural weight class.

    Like I said, Crawford came in as high as 153 down at 135, I doubt Taylor has even come in as high as that albeit he would be close to it

    Just curious, are you guessing at these weights or have they released day of fight weights?

    Watching it again...

    1. Taylor clear
    2. Taylor, stronger finish from Ramirez but too late..

    Those two rounds were clearly Josh.. beautiful poise & counters.. looks comfortable even under pressure..

    I remember 3 being Ramirez' best round.. let's see..

    Yes, Ramirez trying to put it on him in that one but Taylor not rattled..

    3. Ramirez

    4. Hard fought messy round but I still give it to Taylor.. the dog in Taylor is coming out now.. he's got it all..

    High calibre stuff this, both can mix it up well to head and body but Taylor has mastered it..

    5. Good round, trading leather but again it's obvious Taylor is just that bit better at everything.. Taylor round again

    6. Taylor flattens him with a stunning left to open up the round.. fair play for getting up from that, not many would have.. Ramirez still fires back, some great inside work in this fight from both men.. Taylor making it look easy now ..

    This is even more impressive on second viewing… Taylor has it all .. footwork, inside game, durability, shot selection..

    7. Ramirez output has slowed, Taylor is boxing
    his head off.. down from the uppercut
    too.. Ramirez is on ***** Street .. Bayliss helping Ramirez, pushes Taylor back most of the way across the ring :lol:..

    8. Taylor mugging him that round, really noticeable how little effect Ramírez shots have on Josh..

    9. Closer round, not much happening but again still a Taylor round

    10. Taylor's versatility & skill level on full display here.. good round but Taylor's again

    11. Ramirez finished better but still hard to give it him but I want to just out of sympathy lol..

    12. Taylor probably gave that one to Ramirez knowing it's in the bag..

    He's Just toyed with a unified champion there..

    Yes, the judges scoring was BAD. So was most of the uk pundits.. this was a clear as day Taylor WIDE UD WITHOUT the KDs.

    Yes, Taylor's top 5 p4p. Brilliant fighter.

    I remember getting into it with a couple of JCR fans who predicted that JCR was going to knock Taylor out. I informed them that Taylor has never been down amateur or pro even though he's fought more legit punchers and KO artists in less fights than JCR who had been down before both amateur and pro has and that they weren't applying the scientific method like Serge the Scientist does. Baranchyk, Rougarou, Khongsong (albeit the fight didn't even last a round) and Davies are massive punchers and he's just fought another legit banger in JCR who can crack with both hands and the only one of them who hit the canvas is JCR and he was very nearly KTFO and I've praised his chin on here before

    He can crack

    On JCR
