    Since its a multi-year deal, Arum will marinate the unification for Josh Taylor vs Jose Ramirez for 3 years.

    Any idea if Shane McGuigan will still be training him?

    Because the trainer is the son of the promoter he split from.

    I still don't get that.

    There's a very weak mind in that mix somewhere if you ask me by the sound of that

    Why do people keep signing with Top Rank? Stop letting Arum exist

    I think he's signed with them because he can make the unification fight with TR. Boxing politics is a fckin joke!

    Ok so basically he's announcing he's in a 'retirement' phase. He'll get a lot of money fighting nobodies which will set him up for a nice nest egg when he leaves the sport. Makes sense.

    Yeah true. There should be no barriers to getting the fight done.

    I’ve just read now that Taylor may have Freddie Roach as his new trainer.

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/10713890/taylor-trainer-freddie-roach/

    The split from the McGuigans has been acrimonious so far and doesn’t look like it will quieten down any time soon. They are saying he’s still with them as part of Cyclone promotions.

    It’s been quite an exciting time recently for Taylor, what with winning the WBSS, these recent events and his arrest last year at a nightclub for having coke and “racially abusing” a bouncer by calling him an, “orange c**t”.

    Did he have too much fake tan on or something?

    Phwoar!

    I don’t know if the racist abuse was a Protestant vs Catholic, sectarian thing, or due to sunbed overuse. Being drunk and coked up he probably just said the first offensive thought that popped in his head.

    I took it to the extreme this New Year's Eve so I've gone sober. Never want to have that feeling again
