Emmanuel Taylor-Karim Mayfield to ESPN2 on 7/18

By Ryan Maquiñana

Two junior welterweights coming off nationally televised losses aim to get back in the win column July 18 when Emmanuel Taylor and Karim Mayfield meet at The Paramount in Huntington, New York.

BoxingScene.com was informed that ESPN2 will air the bout on its “Friday Night Fights” series.  Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing will promote the card.

Taylor (17-2, 12 KOs), from Edgewater, Maryland, is coming off a decision defeat in February to Chris Algieri on ESPN2, while Mayfield (18-1-1, 11 KOs), from San Francisco, lost a regional title bout to Thomas Dulorme on HBO one month later.

Unbeaten Brooklyn-based welterweight Cletus Seldin (13-0, 10 KOs) is slated to face an unnamed opponent in the co-feature.

“Taylor’s got fast hands what I’ve seen so far,” said Brian Schwartz, Mayfield’s new trainer. “With Karim, we’ve just been trying to develop his left hand and work on his balance. I think it’s a great test for him to get back in the ring after the Dulorme fight.”

As far as the undercard and "unnamed opponent", that's been signed. Cletus Seldin will be fighting [B]Jared "The Quiet Storm" Robinson (14-1)[/B], who fights out of Charlotte, North Carolina. This is going to be Seldin's biggest test. In Jared's last…

Whoever wins can get a shot at a champion/strong contender and revive themselves. Loser just fades out.

Solid matchup....guys willing to put it all on the line. I'd rather see this than some overprotected prospect fight some TBA which got old long ago.
