    I'd like to see him stick to fighting in the UK after them criminal scorecards and the shocking refeering by Kenny Bayless, that was an attempted robbery,

    Bob Arum said Jack Catterall is next and then hopefully Terence Crawford.

    Catterall at home isn’t bad. Hopefully gets his Edinburgh castle fight. I suppose that would help his profile too.

    As a fan I want him to take the step up to 147, have a tune up there and see how he is. I already highlighted Mikey Garcia for this. He’s a big name and way past his best.

    I just don't see why Taylor would go up in weight. He's perfect at 140 and the division should get better.

    I don’t know why they are bothering with Catterall it’s hardly a PPV or big money fight or a worthy challenger.


    The only two that make sense is the Teo fight for all the belts at 140. Or

    if he’s going up to 147 take a fight there to get adjusted to the weight for Crawford. Someone like Avaneysan makes sense

    Money is likely to be the reason he can get poor money for fighting the likes of Catterall or make five times the money vs Crawford and if he wins that he opens the doors to Spence, Pacquiao, Garcia etc etc

    Because Cat stepped aside to allow the undisputed fight.

    Agree but just relinquish now it’s achieved.

    otherwise he next 3 fights will be mandatories against Catterall, Ritson and Paro going off the rankings. Pointless fights all round for mediocre money

    Perhaps do the Catterall fight, as QP/TR can come together to give him Edinburgh Castle, then move on.

    If a few of the lightweights want greatness they should be looking at Taylor. Lopez seems most likely.

    He goes up to welterweight as things are currently he's going to be in the same position as Crawford getting frozen out by the pbc win or lose.hang fire just now and try build himself a loyal fan base in Scotland,hopefully fill some arena's and see who's willing to come take his belts.then down the line move up to welter when it's less polluted.

    Should call for a fight with tank davies IMO , big money the winner will be a bona fide star and think its a more winnable fight than spence / crawford , in size alone I think spence is to big , although crswford more skilled he’s the smaller of the two and has been buzzed hiself , even haney ryan garcia etc , josh is a relatively frail light welter think he should be calling up the lightweights or chase the ex lightweight whos p4p in crawford , great fight and performance and its a disgrace that he’s had no fanfare or uk media coverage , fite was terrible in comparison to the normal ppv uk broadcasters and , watched espn America version and was in stitches when fury interrupted everyone about 10 mins early

    I'd first like to see his profile as big as it should be. An Adrien Broner fight would be perfect for that

    I think he will probably fight Catterall. He is asking for Crawford. I think he could get Crawford next year or Lopez in the summer.

    Whatever he does is absolutely fine. Undisputed in 18 fights is incredible

    Want him to follow the American route and move up in weight, he's what 30 now is Taylor?

    How often do we say fighters should move up in weight, I think now is the perfect opportunity for him to do it, get adjusted to the weight above and then a big fight.
