Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum is already mapping out the scenario for a 2022 showdown between undisputed junior welterweight champion Josh Taylor and WBO welterweight king Terence Crawford.

Arum, who promotes both boxers, believes the contest would be an instant mega-event in Taylor's home city of Edinburgh.

Back in May, Taylor traveled to Las Vegas to win a twelve round unanimous decision over Jose Ramirez to unify the junior welterweight division.

The first order of business for Taylor is a mandatory defense against Jack Catterall in the fall.

And then, provided everything is on track, Arum would like to get Crawford and Taylor in the ring in Scotland.

"Josh is a major talent," Arum told Sky Sports. "He will be fighting Jack Catterall in November. Then, we hope, early next year we will be able to do a fight that will blow the lid off of everything in the UK. That would be Taylor challenging Crawford for the welterweight title.

"It would be primetime in the UK. We'd love to do it there in the spring with 60,000 people in Scotland."

Crawford is scheduled to return in the month of October, against an opponent to be determined.

While Taylor is viewed as a tremendous underdog in the contest, he feels confident in his ability to overcome Crawford - viewed by many as one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the sport.

"There's always been a fight - Viktor Postol was a step too far, Regis Prograis was a step too far, Jose Ramirez was a step too far. They were all too good for me and I keep proving them wrong, and I'll prove them wrong again," Taylor said.

"I believe in my own ability. I believe I've fought better opposition than Crawford has, although Crawford is very, very good, he's elite level. But he hasn't fought the best opponents in his division. He's fought good fighters, good opposition, but I believe I fought at the better level. I fought better fighters on the way up."
