On April 20th at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi, former middleweight champion Jermain "Bad Intentions" Taylor (29-4-1, 18 KO's) will take part in the second fight of his comeback, when he faces undefeated Caleb "Golden" Truax (18-0-1, 10 KO's) in a 10-round middleweight match. Showtime will televise. Not everyone is happy with Taylor's upcoming opponent, but his promoter, Lou DiBella, considers Truax to be the perfect opponent at this moment in time.

After a two year layoff, 33-year-old Taylor returned to the ring last December to stop Jessie Nicklow in eight rounds.

"Truax is a fine opponent for this fight. He's a step above Jessie Nicklow. He's had a few good wins. He's undefeated and he's not used to losing. I'm excited and I think it's a good fight. I need to keep Jermain active. He needs to get the ring rust off and be active right now," DiBella told BoxingScene.com.

The initial April opponent was reported to be former champion Joachim Alcine of Canada, but Taylor's handlers would later reject him.

"Alcine is a left-hander. I think the feeling was....Alcine maybe in the next fight, but right now Truax is the guy we looked at as the appropriate next step."

Caleb Truax fights out of my local gym! Good for him to be getting a shot at the big time. He is the best talent in there so I hope he represents us well. Good luck Golden!
