Jose Ramirez Josh Taylor: Are We Close To Undisputed?

Ramirez gains respectable win against Postol

By Jake Adkin   - @JakeAdkinSport

In a closely contested fight for the unified WBO & WBC Super Lightweight Championship, the holder Jose Ramirez had to come through adversity as he took on awkward veteran Viktor Postol. In what was considered a flat performance, Ramirez managed to win enough rounds to take a majority decision, his second decision of that nature in a row. But how does this performance effect Ramirez’ standing in the potential Undisputed fight with IBF & WBA Champion Josh Taylor. 

The fight was very nip-and-tuck, with rounds going either way for the majority of the fight. Interestingly, all three judges scored the fight identically through rounds 2 to 10. The scorecards read 116-112, 115-113 and 114-114. Postol did a very good job of keeping Ramirez at range for large portions of the fight but in what has been seen in many of Ramirez’ close fights, his volume and ferocity helped him win rounds that could have swung in his opponents favour. 

Unsurprisingly, a quick look on social media will see legions of fans comparing Ramirez’ performance against Postol with Taylor’s. To compare, Taylor kept Postol honest with great work on the inside and outside before dropping his opponent hard in the tenth. In a disciplined performance, Taylor got his hand raised in a far more convincing fashion than the American. This coupled with the fact that Taylor has a win over consensus division #3 Regis Prograis would sit Taylor comfortably as the A-Side and also as the bookmaker’s favourite over his fellow 140lbs Champion. 

The winner of a potential Taylor v Ramirez fight would only be the fourth Undisputed Champion of the four-belt era, with Bernard Hopkins, Jermaine Taylor, Terrence Crawford and Oleksandr Usyk being the other to achieve such a brilliant feat. 

Both fighters fight under the Top Rank banner so the fight has very few obsticles to overcome, with both champs welcoming the bout. Taylor has to face his mandatory challenger Apinun Khongsong in the meantime and it is presumed by many that Taylor should get past his Thai opponent.
