Since the inception of the WBO in 1988 as the fourth recognised governing body alongside the WBA, WBC & IBF we’ve had just 4 male undisputed, 4 belt champions. Bernard Hopkins, Jermaine Taylor Terence Crawford & Alexander Usyk hold that rare distinction along with Katie Taylor & Claressa Shields on the female ranks, this Saturday the undefeated pair of Josh Taylor (17-0) & Jose Ramirez (26-0) will clash for all marbles. Each man holds two 140lbs titles a piece with the Ring magazine title also on the line. Here we get the predictions of super lightweight contenders..

Great fight between the two champions, I feel the early rounds will be close with Ramirez being aggressive trying to outwork and push Taylor back to the ropes, I feel Taylor will be taking his time trying to land the more eye catching harder counter punches. Then as they go in to the later rounds I think Josh will take over with his strength and power punching with a clinic performance, possibly even late stoppages for Taylor, if not close points Taylor.
My prediction is that Josh Taylor does the business, I think he’s one of the top p4p boxers in the world & a class above. He’s stepped up everyone he’s gone up in levels, I see Taylor winning a unanimous decision & will then move up to welterweight to win titles there
I think Taylor will do the job on points, I think it’s closer than the bookies have got it and it will be a tough contest for him but I think he’ll do it. Looking forward to it think it will be a cracker!
I think Taylor will win on points, I think it will be a good exciting fight and I’m sure Ramirez will have some good moments but Josh will come through it on top.
The way the Mexicans have been performing I’m going go with Jose Ramirez, Josh Taylor is very good though, it will be a great fight!
