By Jake Donovan

Former middleweight king Jermain Taylor continues his comeback, though the latest stop nearly produced disastrous results. A ninth round knockdown provided much needed drama for a largely dull affair, but Taylor literally held on to take a unanimous decision over Caleb Truax in their Showtime-televised main event Friday evening at the Beau Rivage Casino in Biloxi, MS.

Scores were 98-91, 97-92 and 97-94 for Taylor, who has won two straight since returning to the ring last December. Truax suffers his first professional loss.

In the televised co-feature, Erislandy Lara made quick work of Ronald Hearns, stopping the second generation fighter at 1:34 of the first round. Lara dropped Hearns early, rocked him to the point of a standing eight count and then outright flattened him to end the fight.

Felt sorry for Taylor after he got k.o'd because he looked done after that.

[QUOTE=ADP02]Taylor looked very tentative tonight ... made it a boring fight until the knock down .... then Taylor was in survival mode.[/QUOTE] I agree, he is really not the same anymore....big names will dispatch him in a heartbeat....

Taylor, what a waste
comment by Atldude6, on 04-21-2012
I have always thought Taylor was a talent. I think he could still be relevent but not with a trainer that wont let him fight. The worst advice Ive ever seen in a corner EVER. (And what the hell happened to his left hand, weak jabs and 1 damn hook that landed the whole fight.) If he had been told ...

I wish JT all the best in his comeback but I'm pretty sure that chin is done. Once he gets in the ring w/ a puncher who can catch him....lights out!

[QUOTE=turbotime]Lara's talent? He has like 16 fights, calm it[/QUOTE] My bad boss, wasn't aware the number of fights determined a fighter's talent level. :sad6:
