Re: Taylor wants a slugfest
I think there's a big difference between a slugfest and a shootout. A slugfest would be standing flat-footed and trading like Gatti/Ward. For a shootout, I think of two guys fighting all offense, but usually incorporating movement, changing speeds and overall taking a more sophisticated approach.
I agree a slugfest would not be in Taylor's best interests, but he has a very good chance in a shootout.
My guess is that's what he has in mind.
