Former world middleweight challenger Shannan Taylor (48-7-3, 34 KOs) will take a warm up fight against Kiatchai Singwancha (26-6, 16 KOs) at the Wollongong Basketball Stadium, NSW, Australia before a bout with former WBA light heavyweight champion Danny Green which is being tipped to be held in Perth during August. Taylor said, “I’m looking forward to fighting Danny Green in Perth. I have spent a lot of time there training at Craig Christian’s gym. There was a report in a Sydney newspaper on Sunday stating I did not like Perth. That is wrong…I love Perth and the people there. I am confident I can defeat Danny. We have sparred about 100 rounds and I won 90 rounds in my opinion. He wants to get himself into great shape because I will give him the fight of his life.” Taylor lost a twelve round points decision to former WBA super middleweight champion Anthony Mundine in 2009, also a twelve round decision to IBF middleweight champion Arthur Abraham in 2006. In 2001 Shane Mosley stopped Taylor in six rounds of a WBC welterweight bout. Taylor holds KO wins over several world champions including former IBF 140 pound champion Jake Rodriguez and former WBA lightweight champion Livingstone Bramble.
