Josh taylor, undisputed champion of the super lightweight, is willing to move up the division to face Terence crawford.
“I want to go up to 147 and look for a great fight like Crawford“, He commented Taylor at the press conference after his triumph over Jose Ramirez. “I won’t call him nicknames or start cursing him, I think he’s a great fighter, but I think two undisputed super lightweight champions fighting would be fantastic.”

The Briton left the scorecards of the three judges at 114-112, each remaining with six rounds. The takedowns were what made the difference.
