Taylor says he’s stronger!

Former middleweight champion Jermain Taylor says he’s is bigger and stronger than he ever has been in his boxing career — and he wants Carl Froch to know it. Taylor, still in the middle of an intensive training camp in Miami, will fight as a super middleweight for the second time in his career when he tries to take Froch’s WBC Super Middleweight belt from the Englishman on April 25. “I will have a lot of power at 168 pounds,” Taylor said. “Pound-for-pound he’s not the fighter I am, and he knows it. He won’t be able to hold up to the firepower I’m bringing in the ring on April 25th.” Taylor dispatched Jeff Lacy in his first fight at 168 pounds, and is prepared to be the aggressor and take the fight to Froch for 12 rounds. The fight card is being promoted by DiBella Entertainment in association with Hennessy Sports. Tickets are on sale now and priced at $200, $100, $75 and $50. Showtime Championship Boxing will telecast live from MGM Grand Theater at MGM at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, Conn. at 9 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).

The Taylor Camp has released the following tale of the tape to show how Jermain measures up:
