Taylor vs Ramirez: What has been said?
Josh Taylor: “I always believed I would be world champion, that was my dream, but did I think I would be fighting to become undisputed world champion? Deep down, probably not.
“When you think of fighting for undisputed title fights, you think of the superstars of the sport, and now Josh Taylor is going to be in a fight of this magnitude for all these titles and it’s just a real ‘pinch me’ moment.”
Jose Ramirez: “I am trying to reach a lot of people. Every person has an opportunity to do something good in the world and hopefully they take it.
“I know I’ve been really blessed. I have a beautiful family and support from the people who really matter to me in my community.
“Boxing defines me but I also enjoy sharing some of my glory with the less fortunate.”
