JOSH TAYLOR vs. JOSE RAMIREZ
Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, US
Josh Taylor and Jose Ramirez both made weight as they prepare for tomorrow night’s highly-anticipated undisputed super-lightweight title clash.
IBF and WBA super-lightweight champion Taylor (17-0, 13 KOs) faces WBC and WBO super-lightweight champion Ramirez (26-0, 17 KOs) at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, and will be broadcast live in the UK on Fite TV and in the USA on ESPN.
The weigh-in took place on Friday, with Taylor coming in at a ripped and ready 139.6lbs, while Ramirez was the identical weight, also coming in at 139.6lbs.
The two men were then involved in an intense face-off, as they prepare to do battle with one another in a massive fight tomorrow evening.
Here are their parting verbal ripostes, before the talking is over… and the action commences:
“I have faced many left-handed fighters in my career. On an amateur and professional level. I have been preparing for this fight all my life! I am very good physically. I believe in my abilities and will do my best. I always prepare like I am not the favorite. I always train like every fight is the biggest fight of my career. I can’t afford to lose. That’s always been my mindset. I always find a way to win. I will find a way to win.”
“I loved every minute of the camp in Las Vegas. I respect every fighter who enters the ring. You don’t become a unified champion by luck. You have to be a great fighter. I respect him a lot. He’s a great fighter and a great person. But on Saturday night, as soon as the bell rings, all that respect goes out the window. I’m sure I’ll get the knockout on Saturday.”
