The undisputed super lightweight champion of Britain, Josh Taylor, plans to move up to 147 pounds, after demonstrating his greatness in the super lightweight division, thanks to memorable victories over Regis Prograis, Viktor Postol and José Ramírez.
The Great Scot will defend his four world titles against Jack Catterall in February. If the 31-year-old boxer emerges victorious from that challenge, several attractive opponents await for him at 147 pounds. Terence Crawford, Jordenis Ugas and Errol Spence are the current dominant fighters at welterweight and Taylor has the desire to prove himself there in the near future.
“I’d like to go up to 147 and become a two-weight world champion,” Taylor said in an interview with The Ring “Chase some of these big, massive fights, that’s what I want to do.”
Hopefully I will become a undisputed welterweight world champion in the near future. This is one of my goals for 2022. It is definitely something very possible”.
