Undisputed 140lb champion Josh Taylor is gearing up for his next fight when he takes on Jack Catterall on February 26, but when asked about his opinion on a future welterweight clash with Terence Crawford as two former undisputed 140-pound champions, Taylor expresses his respect while maintaining much confidence in his chances.
“That’s a great fight, that’s a terrific fight,” Taylor said. “Terence Crawford is an all-time great, gonna go down as. He’s brilliant, he can do it all. He fights southpaw, orthodox, front foot, back foot, fights inside — he can do the lot, like myself. I can do the lot as well so I think with me being the undisputed at 140 as well, he was the last person to do it, so I think that fight’s very interesting and one I think I’m capable of winning as well.
“I don’t think it would be a massive upset if I won that fight. Obviously it would be a little bit of an upset in terms of the public, but in my eyes I don’t think it would be.”
