Boxing: Josh Taylor And Jose Carlos Ramirez Set For Winner Takes All Super-lightweight Bout

The winner of Fury-Joshua will hold all of the major world titles in the heavyweight division, but Josh Taylor could make sure that person isn't Britain's first undisputed champion in the four-belt era.

Scotland's Taylor, who holds the WBA and IBF super-lightweight titles, will take on WBC and WBO champion Jose Carlos Ramirez in Las Vegas on Saturday.

'The Tartan Tornado' won the IBF strap in just his 15th fight, beating Ivan Baranchyk in May 2019, and added the WBA title by beating Regis Prograis five months later.

In American Ramirez, he faces a man who has won all 26 pro fights, but Taylor is ready to rule the 140lb division…

Victory would make Taylor one of the hottest properties in world boxing - but where would the 30-year-old look next?

They say 'never meet your heroes', but what about fighting them instead? Taylor would love to face 42-year-old Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao, a man he named his late dog after.

Speaking to The Sun, Taylor said: "Manny is a hero of mine so when we named the dog it came about naturally, I could never have dreamed back then of fighting him but I would still love to now, 100%.

"As soon as that bell rang it would be down to business, even though he is an idol of mine and he isn't as young as he used to be. He is still a dangerous top-level fighter so I would have to be ruthless."
