Re: Jermaine Taylor
I compare Jermaine to Khan. They both have great speed and reflexes yet no fight plan. So they can fight on autopilot and make it through for the most part, but then get caught and knocked out like Khan with Garcia and Pavlik. If they only learned mental discipline. Khan being stopped by Garcia was not as devastating as Taylor by Pavlik since Taylor was worn out and took more of a beating than Khan against Garcia, but still there are similarities which I always saw. Now compare the Khan and Taylor speed yet no fight plan to guys like James Toney who used defense to win fights, or Hopkins who uses tactics to win fights.
I do think Bernard is a little overrated since he fought Taylor since he handpicks and loses to the good fighters, but beats the mediocre, but his style is effective in preventing him from getting knocked out, which is why he can keep coming back over and over.
