Article by Rick Mohamed
Josh Taylor hands Jose Ramirez his 1st career loss, winning by unanimous decision & unifying all of the junior welterweight titles
Josh Taylor Vs Jose Ramirez lived up to the bill in this undisputed Junior Welterweight World Championship fight in Las Vegas at the newly opened Virgin Hotel & Casino Las Vegas in Paradise, NV.. The fireworks were flying all night from both fighters.
Josh Taylor came out showing control with the jab right away. He wanted to show Ramirez early that this was his night and his show.
Ramirez had much to say to counter, as he showed his own great performance tonight. He delivered powerful body & head shots to his opponent on a consistent basis.
Then came the 6th round: Taylor dropped Ramirez, who took the 8 count and continued the round, holding on to get his legs back underneath him. This continued in the 7th round: Taylor caught Ramirez with a solid, powerful left uppercut that sent Ramirez on the seat of his pants, and the crowd went crazy!
Ramirez at this point is holding in to dear life in survival mode just to make it out of the round, just to get back to his corner so they could revive him. Taylor delivered shots from many angles, wowing the crowd! Ramirez had his family and friends in the audience supporting him, then spurring him on as well.
This was indeed a spectacular night for boxing.
The confusing part was that the judges had this fight very close at 114-112 for all (3) judges’ scorecards! So, had Taylor not have gotten those 2 knockdowns we would have been possibly facing a split draw! Unbelievable.
Taylor is crowned the Undisputed Junior Welterweight Champion of the World. I want to know: will we see Josh Taylor move to 147 to try his good fortune against the top dogs in Terrance “Bud” Crawford & Errol Spence Jr.?
This will be interesting to see in his next outing. We congratulate “Team Taylor” It was a great night for boxing. Until next time boxing fans.
