LITTLE ROCK- Jermain Taylor (28-4-1, 17KO's) former undisputed middleweight champion has made a decision regarding his future boxing career.

"I'm going to take some time off from the sport of boxing and take myself out of SHOWTIME Sports World Boxing Classic tournament. It's important that I give my body and mind some much needed rest, because I have been boxing for nearly 20 years," said Taylor. "I plan on keeping myself in shape and making a return to the sport sometime in the future.  This was not an easy decision for me, having discuss it with my family, trainer, friends and my adviser Al Haymon, because I'm a very competitive person-but I know this is the smart road for me to take. I want to thank SHOWTIME  Sports for everything and I wish the best for my 5 counterparts who will continue on in the Super Six tournament. Most of all, I want to thank the many fans for their continued support."

Thank God! Jermain Taylor was fighting people under his Weight Class and was winning. Now that he start fighting people in his Wieght Class. He's getting Knocked Out! He should stay retired and Let's clean up Boxing Now!

Good move. Good for Jermain. Like everyone said, Bute is really the only option, but I have a feeling it won't happen. Isn't Allan Green with DiBella? I could see Lou pushing for that replacement.
