    I’ve just looked at the rankings and I’m pretty sure Taylor will vacate and move up a weight class after beating Ramirez. There really is nothing left for him there. Caterall will have a very good chance of becoming wbo world champion

    If he goes up undisputed he can do a Usyk and be mandatory for Crawford. Though he'd presumably need at least one fight at the weight before taking on Bud.

    If he can beat Ramirez there's some absolutely huge fights for him at 147, big money and the chance to go down as one the great British fighters.

    He is a complete bell end and McGuigan made
    Him better but he jumped ship.

    140 is a very weak division,

    There are 5 guys at 135 that would beat the **** out of him and atleast 20 @ 147

    Billy Joe is facing Canelo
    Taylor is facing Ramirez lol

    Levels people, Canelo is on a different planet to these 140 bums,

    Can anyone see a cruiserweight beating AJ or Fury lol?

    Tank, Haney, Lopez, Loma, Garcia, Stevenson can anyone guarentee me Taylor could beat them?

    Is anyone delusional enough to think that Crawford doesn't knock him the **** out?

    Ergashev is better than both Taylor and Ramirez

    Lets give Taylor the Ramirez scalp already

    Who has he beaten that would beat Ryan Garcia?
    Who has he beaten that would beat Tank Davis?
    Who has he beaten that would beat Devin Haney?
    Who has he beaten that would beat Teo Lopez?
    Who has he beaten that would beat Lomachenko?

    NO ONE LOL

    At the same time who has ryan garcia beaten that would beat josh taylor?

    Who has devon haney beaten that would beat josh?

    Who has tank davis beaten that would beat josh?

    Who has lomachenko beaten that would beat josh?

    Think teo,s win over lomachenko,s about the real stand out win. Apart from that tho i m not sure they,ve got too many guys on their resumes that would beat josh. Dont necessarily think he,d beat any of them...but at the same time the same question could be reversed without an answer for most of them.

    If Taylor beats Ramirez I hope he fights Catterall. If I was him I would then target Conor Benn at WW In an all British ppv clash (call them out). That would be a good introduction fight at WW before stepping up to fight a world champion at the weight.

    never a million years would Benn take that fight he would get destroyed. If your Taylor beat ramirez and going move up in weight. Why not fight khan or Brook big names good payday would be massive favourite and probably still sell well

    I think Benn would sell better at end of 2021 early 2022. Agree Taylor would win but I think Benn would take fight if challenged (would regret it). Benn earmarked as ppv so plenty of money in fight if ppv.

    1. Taylor would absolutely muller Benn at this stage
    2. Matchroom are trying to build Benn, no way do they undo everything at this stage by suddenly put him in with a p4p fighter in Josh Taylor

    I just can't see it at all personally. Think Taylor is just a level or two above him

    Why not? If fat panda was able to beat A.J, then Dorticos for sure if he will land on him properly. Fury had been down vs Cunningham for example.
    Why not if they will land.

    So everybody can see how good Taylor is except the guy who thought Eubank JNR was going to be the next P4P great.
