IBF, WBA junior welterweight champion Josh Taylor admits that he would need to muster up a lot of mental strength to get himself motivated in a closed doors scenario.
Earlier this month, Taylor was due to defend his two titles against mandatory challenger Apinun Khongsong of Thailand. The event was pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"It would be a bit like a glorified sparring match if there's only 50 people in the building," Taylor said to BBC Sport. "It's not ideal. I think for me it would be quite hard to get up for.
"If the crowd wasn't there you'd lose that wee bit of nervousness walking out. Just as you get ready to walk out, you see the crowd and think this is it man, what I live for and there's no way I'm getting beat. It fires you up. But, on the other side, I go back to my amateur days when there were only a couple of hundred there. So I'd go back to that experience to make sure I win the fight."
Taylor explains that he's trying to stay fit and focused, as there is no telling when his next fight will come down.
"I am training and keeping fit but it's hard to push yourself to the limit when you haven't got any motivation or idea when this might end," added the IBF and WBA champion.
"When you know a fight is coming up you can keep training but now we don't know how long this will be."
Taylor has been out of the ring since last October, when he pulled off a very impressive win with a twelve round decision over unbeaten Regis Prograis in the final round of the World Boxing Super Series junior welterweight tournament.
While he still expects his next opponent to be Khongsong, he would rather fight WBC, WBO world champion Jose Ramirez.
"I don't know what the organisations will think about the mandatory fights. If we can get them pushed aside and go for the big fights I'd rather that. That would be better for me and everyone I think," Taylor said.
