JOSH TAYLOR vs. JOSE RAMIREZ
Virgin Hotels Las Vegas 22/5/21
(WBC, WBA, IBF & WBO Super Lightweight Titles)
Josh Taylor made history as he defeated Jose Ramirez to become the undisputed super-lightweight champion.
Taylor defeated Ramirez by unanimous decision, to walk away with the WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO titles following an incredible battle at the Virgin Hotels Las Vegas on Saturday.
The Tartan Tornado dominated the majority of the rounds, and scored two massive knockdowns in round six and round seven, with Ramirez only just managing to get back to his feet.
The fight went the distance, with the judges scoring it 114-112, 114-112, 114-112, meaning in just his 18th professional fight Taylor becomes one of the few men in history to become four-belt undisputed champion.
Taylor said: “I’m ecstatic. I’ve trained my whole life for this and dreamt of it so many times over. I’m so happy and over the moon.
“Nothing but love for Ramirez. I meant no disrespect this week. It was just mind games to get him more eager to jump in. We said all week we will use his aggression against him and we got in his head. There is nothing but respect there though, he’s a great champion and an ambassador for the sport.
“The scorecards should have been a bit wider. I wasn’t too happy with the selection of judges but we were still confident of winning the fight. There is a new warrior king on the map and he’s from Scotland!”
