I'm not really sure if it was him that made the decision or his manager, either way I was a lil pissed from that too. The Ring Magazine had him listed in this piece they did "5 fighters making the right moves, 5 fighters making the wrong moves." He fit in the latter category.
Yeah I'd lean towards a Taylor win too. I honestly think he gets hyped up so much by Calzaghe fans, making it seem like he was Hagler or some ****!
