Jose Ramirez faces Josh Taylor

Josh Taylor takes on Jose Ramirez in a mouthwatering 140lbs undisputed world championship bout on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

Taylor has been fast-tracked to success in the professional ranks after a distinguished amateur career, and has already defeated the likes of Viktor Postol, Ivan Baranchyk and Regis Prograis to claim the IBF and WBA belts.

Ramirez will, perhaps, provide the hardest test of the Scot’s career yet, though. The American is undefeated in 26 professional bouts and unified the WBO and WBC belts with a victory over Maurice Hooker last year. The 28-year-old was somewhat less impressive last time out against Postol, though, and struggled in comparison to Taylor’s decisive performance.

Taylor is adamant that he is completely at ease with the size of the task at hand. “I am totally relaxed about this week,” he said. “I couldn’t be any more mentally and physically prepared. I prepared to the best of my ability so I am nice and relaxed. I am not wasting any energy thinking about the fight and things like that. It is just another day at the office on Saturday with a lot of sets of eyes on me. I am totally confident about this fight so I am not feeling the bit between my teeth and getting anxious, I am just totally relaxed and full of confidence going into this fight.”
