Taylor's Last Chance Saloon

Jermain Taylor’s promoter, Lou DiBella admits that this weekend’s World title showdown with Nottingham’s Carl Froch is a must win fight for the man known as “Bad Intentions”. The former undisputed Middleweight champ will aim to become a two weight World title holder at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut as he bids to rip the WBC Super Middleweight title from Froch who is making his first defence of his title and looking to maintain his status as Britain’s only reigning World Champion. The fight will be available live and exclusive to British and Irish fight fans via an online pay per view at frochvtaylor.com and DiBella says that Taylor cannot afford to contemplate defeat. "If Jermain lost badly I don't think he'd continue, that's my own personal guess,” said DiBella. “If he can't beat Carl I think he's going to take it as a real sign that it's time to leave." DiBella though believes that Taylor, who is still only 30 is hungrier than ever for success. “Jermain’s financially set, he has money in the bank. The reason he wanted this fight so badly was for his legacy, it was to become champion again. He feels that the WBC belt should be worn round his waist.” The challenger is certainly not short on confidence and has already predicted a KO win on Saturday night. “Every fighter knows when he’s ready to do battle and I’m ready,” said Taylor. “My conditioning, stamina and mental preparation is on schedule. I’m peaking at just the right time. “When you match his skill sets with mine, I don’t see how Carl Froch can win this fight. I know you hear that kind of thing a lot from fighters, but, believe me, I honestly believe it to be true in this case.” Froch V Taylor is live and exclusive on frochvtaylor.com from 2am GMT in the early hours of Sunday morning. Orders are now being taken for the fight which costs £9.95 (or €11.00 for Irish viewers) and the fight will be available in both 750kb/s and 1mb/s to give fight fans a true quality streaming experience.
