Ramirez and Crawford have been going back and forth with comments calling each other out to fight. Ramirez will be facing Viktor Postol next while Crawford still doesn’t have an opponent scheduled.
It was expected that Ramirez would eventually face Josh Taylor for the undisputed Super Light weight championship but its looking more like he’ll fight Crawford soon. I think that Crawford will fight someone like Custio Clayton next and once he wins that he’ll face Jose Carlos Ramirez if Ramirez gets past Postol.
They would likely put this fight on PPV so I understand why Ramirez would take it but it does suck for Josh Taylor who misses out on as big undisputed fight.
