FOUR world titles, two boxers, one fight – it is no wonder that Josh Taylor has called it “the jackpot of fights”.

The WBA and IBF World Light Welterweight champion will travel to Las Vegas in May to face WBC and WBO champion Jose Ramirez.

It is winner takes all, with Taylor determined to create a little piece of history and become the first Scotsman to win all four belts in a division.

He said: “I don’t feel any pressure.

“I don’t see how there could be any pressure.

“I have trained my whole life for this moment.

“It is a dream fight and if you ask any fighter on the planet if they would love to be a part of a fight like this – it is most fighters’ dream.

“There is no pressure at all and I am going to enjoy the occasion and the opportunity to be the first Scotsman to do it.”

It has been an incredible three years for the Prestonpans native, who has won two world titles and also been crowned the World Boxing Super Series champion.

In May 2019, he beat the previously undefeated Ivan Baranchyk to lift the IBF title and become a world champion for the first time.

Then, in October of that year, he bested Regis Prograis, who was also undefeated, to be named the WBA champion as well.

Now, Ramirez, who is also undefeated, stands between him and the chance to hold all four belts.

The 28-year-old beat Viktor Postol – who Taylor has also defeated – in his last outing and stopped the previously unbeaten Maurice Hooker to secure the WBO title to go along with the WBC belt.

Taylor, who now lives in Haddington, said: “Ramirez has to be right up there with the others I have faced.

“He unified the world title and has got the other two belts.

“You cannot sit here and disrespect him. He has got the other two belts and got to where he is for a reason.

“He is a really good fighter and the other champion in my weight class.

“He is going to bring a lot of heat for sure.

“He is going to bring the pace and pressure and try to get me into standing and fighting with him.”

The fight in Las Vegas will be the second of Taylor’s career in the city, after he defeated Alfonso Olvera in January 2017.

The Commonwealth Games gold medallist from 2014 stressed he was “absolutely over the moon” to be fighting in America.

However, he has made no secret about his desire to fight in front of his home fans – something that was not on the cards on this occasion due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Taylor said: “I would love it to be Edinburgh Castle or Easter Road or even The SSE Hydro.

“It would have been brilliant to have it over here but every fighter dreams of seeing their name in the bright lights at Las Vegas or at Madison Square Garden in New York.

“I’m absolutely delighted it is over there – it is a fight that dreams are made of.”

Thirty-year-old Taylor is already six weeks into his training camp and plans to fly out to the USA about a month before the contest, which will take place on May 22.

That will give him time to acclimatise to his surroundings ahead of the biggest fight of his career.

He said: “I have got the bit between my teeth and cannot wait to get in there.

“Already, I am really buzzing.

“It is a dream fight, the jackpot of fights.

“You don’t get fights like this coming along very often for all the belts.

“It is the biggest fight out there and really the biggest fight of my career.

“I have worked towards this my whole adult life and I am absolutely buzzing.”
