Former undisputed middleweight champion Jermain Taylor found himself in a surprising place Wednesday night: once again challenging for a world title.

Taylor, 36, made the most of his opportunity. He scored four knockdowns en route to a unanimous decision victory over Sam Soliman at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Taylor (33-4-1, 20 KOs) captured Soliman’s title by scores of 116-111, 115-109 and 116-109.

“I heard it before,” said Taylor, a native of Little Rock, Arkansas, in regard to hearing his name announced as a world titlist. “And I’m hearing it again.”

Taylor, who ended Bernard Hopkins’ historic middleweight title reign in 2005, fell on hard times following four defeats over a five-fight stretch from 2007 to 2009, including one in which he suffered a small brain bleed. Read Full Article>>
