More:



After finally earning a clear cut decision win in his last outing against the outsized Kassim Ouma, undisputed Middleweight Champion Jermain Taylor takes on former undisputed Welterweight Champion Cory Spinks. Neither Taylor nor Spinks commits to taking many chances in a tactical affair, but Taylor consistently lands the few big punches of the bout. After the judges turn in widely disparaging scores, Taylor retains his titles via split decision.

Comments

rorschach's picture

Kind of a dud after the knock down drag out affair that was Pavlik vs Miranda.

Chris M95's picture

Taylor output very low each round but his lead rights in the first half of fight and jab in the second half edged him this fight imo

I thought Spinks did enough to win the middleweight title.
