    Now that Josh Taylor beat Jose Ramirez and is the Undisputed Junior Welterweight King, where does Taylor rank P4P on the P4P List?

    Taylor.. Undisputed, hence he is the only champion in the division and he beat prime undefeated top ranked fighters to get there. His last fight he fought away from home with everything stacked against him and still won

    Spence beat a weight drained GGG smashed Brook and a close decision against Porter. Congrats

    Can anyone imagine Spence fighting away from home at the top level?.. Nope (weight drained damage goods Brook doesn't count)

    Not to mention Spence is a weight bully

    Regis Prograis and Jose Ramirez > Danny Garcia and Shaun Porter

    Spence nearly lost to skeleton Brook. He's not that impressive.

    Spence. Better opposition over a longer period. Also just a better fighter.

    Similar resumes, so Spence by a hair based on longevity.

    If they ever fought, it would be a war and an incredible styles matchup... Hopefully Josh gains rather than loses power when he moves up.

    No. Not really. Taylor is clearly more well rounded.

    You said clearly so it must be true.

    I'm not so sure Ramirez is better than Mikey Garcia.

    Spence is a top p4p level fighter. Put it this way, Crawford is arguably p4p 1 based on eye test alone and many think Spence-Crawford is a 50/50 fight, which makes Spence a potentially p4p 1 level fighter.

    Taylor isn’t even top 10 p4p. He’s undisputed in a very weak division, beating fighters who has beaten nobodies.

    Don't disrespect Spence! Of course Spence is higher. He's been beating better competition and is unified champ. He's about to add another belt fighting Pac cause Pac is going to be activated back to WBA champ!

    Since you said it, then it must be true times two.
