Panel: What should Josh Taylor’s next move be?

Josh Taylor
He's won every major title belt. What should Josh Taylor do now?

Kalle Sauerland

He’s conquered the world, he’s unified the division. He went into the WBSS as a contender, came out a champion, went on to capture the last belts. He’s got a mandatory defence then he’ll be looking for those big US pay-per-view names, like Terence Crawford and maybe even a legacy fight with Pacquiao.

He has mentioned Edinburgh Castle and Easter Road. I’m not sure if there’s time to get a fight on there this summer but him vs Jack Catterall – Scotland vs England – up in Scotland would be great. If he wins then a huge fight in Las Vegas next year so his fans get a trip after they missed out last weekend.

Darren Barker
Former IBF titlist

Move up to welter and fight Terence Crawford. It’s the biggest fight out there for him. I’d just steam into the big ‘uns. Why not? You could say that it’s too soon but he’s flying. I’m all for that, straight in. His confidence is as high as it could be. He’ll feel he’s invincible and that’s the mindset you need going into a fight like that. Why wait?

Paul Ready
Boxing manager

I think he should have that homecoming fight against Jack Catterall then Teofimo Lopez. There’s a bit of a clamour for him to go up. I think stay at 140lbs, the lightweights are going to come up. Sit tight, you’re the king of the division they’re all going to want to fight you. So keep that target on your back.
