Josh Taylor Form


Taylor boasts a perfect 17-0 record heading into his first fight in the United States for over four years.

The 30-year-old Scot’s rise to the top of the light-welterweight division came as part of the World Boxing Super Series.

Having stopped Ryan Martin in the quarter-finals, he became a world champion for the first time in the semi-finals.

Taylor bested Ivan Baranchyk over 12 rounds to claim the IBF title.

He then successfully defended that crown and added the WBA (Super) and Ring Magazine belts in the final.

Taylor went the distance with Regis Prograis and was awarded a majority decision win by the judges.

His first defence of all of those belts came last September when he stopped Apinun Khongsong in one round.

Jose Carlos Ramirez Form


Ramirez boasts a 100% professional record after successfully defending his belts in his sole outing of 2020.

The 28-year-old American became a world champion for the first time in March 2018.

Ramirez claimed a 12-round decision win over Amir Imam to claim the vacant WBC title.

He then made two successful defences against Antonio Orozco and Jose Zepeda, going 12 rounds both times.

Ramirez added the WBO title by stopping Maurice Hooker in six rounds in July 2019.

He then set this big bout for all of the marbles by beating Viktor Postol via majority decision last summer.
