Taylor-Green postponed!

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former two time world title challenger Shannan Taylor (49-7-3, 35KO’s) scheduled August bout in Perth with former WBA light heavyweight champion Danny Green has been postponed. Taylor said. “Danny Green’s manager called me today and said that our fight had been postponed but did not give me another date. I am very disapointed because I was confident of causing an upset by beating Danny. We had boxed about one hundred rounds in the gym and I think I had the better of him most of the time.” Taylor has scored knockouts over several world champions including Livingstone Bramble and Jake Rodriguez but lost to Shane Mosley in a WBC welterweight title challenge in 2001. He dropped a twelve round decision to Arthur Abraham in an IBF middleweight challenge in 2006. In 2009 former WBA super middleweight champion Anthony Mundine outpointed the “Bulli Blaster. “Mundine cannot punch but has great speed of hand,” said Taylor.
