Josh Taylor thinks a battle with Terence Crawford may very well be sooner moderately than later
Since defeating former tremendous light-weight champion Jose Carlos Ramirez, Irish boxer Josh “The Tartan Twister” Taylor (18-0, 13 KO’s) has been on prime of the world. In beating Ramirez, Taylor was crowned as the undisputed champion of the super lightweight division. Despite the fact that the battle was only one month in the past, the proficient pugilist is already hungry for his subsequent battle. Within the aftermath of his duel with Ramirez, The Tartan Twister would go on to name out WBO World Welterweight champion Terence “Bud” Crawford (37-0, 28 KO’s).
BRING ON CRAWFORD!
Having captured all the most important belts at 140, Taylor was overtly flirting with the concept of shifting as much as problem Crawford. The Nebraskan native has been totally lambasted for his dreary competitors since shifting as much as welterweight nicely again in 2018. Although he could be making his welterweight debut, Taylor would make for Crawford’s most adorned opponent at 147 up to now. Even higher, in keeping with what The Tartan Twister informed to Behind the Gloves, the Crawford battle may very well be nearer than some suppose.
“I spoke to Bob [Arum] and he mentioned in discussions about what’s subsequent. That may occur within the subsequent battle or two. So the dialogue I’ve had, however I’ve not really sat down and had the prolonged dialogue on what’s taking place but as a result of I been doing all these things and never had a minute to myself.”
“So I’ll most likely communicate to him [Arum] subsequent week and see what’s taking place. However that battle is well made. We’re each beneath the identical umbrella so it’s simply made. The one dialogue we’ve received to have is the place the battle is. Is it in Scotland or is it in a Madison Sq. Backyard or in Nebraska the place he’s from or a Vegas? That’s the one dialogue available actually.”
It could be nice if the battle did come collectively that simply and pain-free. Sadly, issues hardly ever go with out mishap within the murky world of boxing enterprise dealings. But, like Taylor identified, they each are beneath the identical Prime Rank promotional umbrella and so that ought to go an extended solution to oiling the gears of manufacturing.
One other variable that may very well be in The Tartan Tornados favor is the truth that Crawford doesn’t have an official opponent in the mean time. Supposedly Bud needs to be saying one quickly, however that was the identical story when he was supposed to be getting the Pacquiao fight. So in the interim we’ll simply have to chill out and wait. No matter who fights who subsequent, 3kingsboxing can be there to report the information.
