    Taylor hasn't been as active. He might also get unlucky with the scorecards.

    I hope I am wrong though. I'd love to see Taylor win and fight Lopez or move up to 147 and fight Crawford.

    I will guarantee you he beats Tank, Garcia & Stevenson, they are just common sense.

    Likely beats Haney, probably Loma on size, and Lopez would be toughest

    Generally a good big'un beats a good little'un. I think Taylor has already proven himself good.

    I agree about not looking past Ramirez though, that's common sense.

    You are very much the wiseman of this forum. Never a bad post.

    Not saying now, I am saying after Ramirez (if Taylor wins as I think) then Catterall. I agree I think he beats him too.

    I would fancy Taylor to beat them all. Would def beat Loma, size and strength difference would be mental.

    If Taylor beats ramirez, I thought he might move up. Staying around for a mandatory against Catterall is a bit of a waste of time.

    If he does hang around for Catterall then it has to be Lopez next or move up.

    I think Josh has said several times he would have at least one fight after (potentially) unifying all the belts at 140, and that fight will be vs Jack Catterall. It may have something to do with Jack agreeing to step aside, without which the Ramirez fight would not be happening in May anyway. Josh has said he wants to fight him, and have a big domestic fight in Scotland late 2021 hopefully with crowds.

    It's a good move, and a very good fight as it goes.

    As for Garcia/Tank/Loma/Haney/Benn/Lopez- on current form and that's all we can go on really, I would back Josh to beat nearly everyone out of that list. Lopez would be the only one I would hesitate to pick Josh over, and even then it's a 50-50.

    I think his biggest problems come fighting guys at the weight above, not fighters coming up from weights below, some of who are arguably untested at their natural weight let alone beyond it.

    Do we have any idea yet how this fight will be shown in the UK? His last fight was on BT.
