Taylor after being stopped by Abraham in October

Having been knocked out in spectacular fashion in 3 of his last 5 fights, former middleweight world champion Jermain Taylor (28-4-1) has decided to remove himself from Showtime’s ‘Super Six’ super middleweight tournament.

Taylor, who was hospitalised after Arthur Abraham knocked him out in the dying moments of their October bout, had stated he would stay in the competition causing his promoter Lou DiBella to sever working ties, but today he announced his decision to step out.

It is not known if he is retiring fully or just leaving the tournament but following the devestating manner of his recent losses it is hoped by all involved with him and fans alike that he will call time on his career.

It is thought that the winner of the Allan Green/Saiko Biko bout next month will assume Taylor’s place.
