Cayo: I have to beat this guy and look good

Dominican super lightweight Victor “Mermelada” Cayo (31-3, 22 KOs) hopes to log his fifth straight win against Emmanuel “The Tranzforma” Taylor (16-1, 11 KOs) on a March 8 ESPN2 fight at the Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. Once rated as high as #3 in the world, the 28-year-old Cayo lost by KO to Lamont Peterson in July 2011 and then dropped a shock TKO to shopworn former champion Nate Campbell in March 2012.

“I have to beat this guy and look good if I’m going to fight for a world title,” said Cayo. “I have trained like everything I worked for is on the line in this fight and in many ways it is…I have worked my whole life for a shot at a title. I have been very close a couple times and things went wrong. I cannot let Taylor take away my chance for another try. Every fight I fight from now on, I will treat as though it is my world championship fight because if I lose I may never get one. I’m not coming to Atlantic City to do anything but show the world Victor Cayo is one of the world’s best.”

In the co-feature, undefeated heavyweight Magomed “Mago” Abdusalamov (16-0, 16 KOs) defends his USNBC title against once-beaten former Puerto Rican Olympian Victor Bisbal (21-1, 15 KOs).

Headlining the undercard will be Virgin Islands-based “The Hawk Flock”, the sons and nephew of former world champion Julian “The Hawk” Jackson, each of whom is an up-and-coming contender in the respective divisions.

WBC Super Welterweight Youth World Champion John “Dah Rock” Jackson (14-1, 13 KOs), super middleweight contender Julius “The Chef” Jackson (14-0, 10 KOs) and junior middleweight contender Samuel “Rock City Cobra” Rogers (12-0, 7 KOs) will each make appearances.

Also scheduled to appear in separate bouts are local favorites such as Millville, New Jersey, light middleweight Thomas “Cornflake” Lamanna (10-0, 6 KOs), Brooklyn lightweight Scott “Bang Bang” Burrell (6-1, 5 KOs) and a special showcase featuring the son of former heavyweight champion Bruce Seldon, undefeated super middleweight Isiah Seldon (6-0, 3 KOs).
