I am fully confident going into this fight. I am bigger than him, stronger, quicker and punch just as hard — I can beat him in every department. If he comes and tries to walk me down, then I believe that he will walk onto a shot, and I will get him out of there. If not I can outbox him for the full 12 rounds.

This is a huge show and I am so excited to be a part of it!
Josh is taller and longer than me, but the tale of the tape doesn’t matter to me. You can’t determine my hook by the tale of the tape or my boxing IQ. I don’t just want to repeat what he said, but I really cannot see how he can beat me.
I am not being cocky or arrogant, but I just can’t see it.

Prediction

Jose Carlos Ramirez
Who will win: Prograis or Taylor?

I think it’s a very tough fight for both fighters. I think it’s a very competive fight, two different styles and we’ll see who is the better man that night.
I think Prograis is the hungrier fighter of the two but I think Taylor is the more technical. I’d be delighted to fight either one of them in the near future, so we can put all the titles on the line to have an undisputed champion in 2020.

It’s a 50/50 fight. I’m going with Prograis, I think it’s definitely going to go the distance.
