Taylor: I’m fit and ready

By Robert Hough

Jermain Taylor (28-3-1, 17 KOs) said Tuesday his losses to Carl Froch and Kelly Pavlik made him realize he had to work harder and wiser. Taylor, who fights Arthur Abraham (30-0, 24 KOs), on October 17 in the Super Six World Boxing Classic, said on a conference call with Abraham and others that his conditioning and fitness are dramatically better than they were before he was beaten. “I got comfortable,” the 31-year-old said. “I was doing things I wasn’t supposed to do to stay in tip-top shape. With training, I was training hard, but I wasn’t training right. Trainer Ozell Nelson, who related that Taylor had to lose about 20 pounds in the two weeks before he faced Froch, said his fighter’s diet is in good order. “He loves to eat; he loves a Big Mac,” Nelson said. “This cat here, he can’t have Big Macs so he’s ready.”
