Default Bernard Taylor v Naseem Hamed

The 'B.T. Express' of the drawn fight with Pedroza versus the 1996 Hamed.

B.T. is more than capable of taking this to a 12 or 15 round UD, provided he doesnt blow up.

Bernard would take the close UD, being the featherweight version of Howard Davis Jr, over Naseem.One of the biggest waste of talents in the last 30 years.

I agree that Taylor was a wasted talent - and it's a shame that he decided to waste these physical talents in a profession that he wasn't best suited for.Probably would have done alot better at track and field or something of that nature.

Th problems with BT was he wasn't the most durable of pros.Say what you will about Naz but Naz could crack and he would eventually catch up to Taylor and stop him-simlar to how Barry caught up to him but sooner.

I was at the fight mate and there was nothing pathetic about it. He boxed the head off McGuigan til he caught up with him. Big right to the stomach coming off the ropes sickened the fight outta him, after that it was only a matter of time.

A little ironic that Taylor complained about the heat do you think


EDIT; just reread your post and whilst i disagree it was a pathetic performance, i can see where an argument could be made about the ending.

Yeah. That old chestnut - the heat. Always affects just one of the fighters
