Taylor being matched with someone who will have good defense, but no work rate. Has the makings of a Taylor on point decision.

Honestly, based on their respective latest performances against Caleb Truax and Irving Garcia - I might have to give the edge to Shay here.

According to The Ring and Fat Dan, Taylor is fighting Raul Munoz October 12th and they'll show highlights of it on Shobox. Steve Kim says there's talks of Omar Henry fighting Ishe.

Do or die for Ishe (feel like I've said this before though....) Interesting fight to say the least. Having been a fan of Ishe for ages now, it irritated me to no end his level on inactivity and inconsistency for a guy who is obviously talented.

I'm aware of those reports. That information might not be as current as this.

It's been reported on a few international boxing sites (with articles dated October 2) that Taylor vs. Smith is a strong possibility, and Ishe himself strongly hinted at it on his Facebook wall.

I favor Ishe at this point.

This is a match-up for Ishe..... though both seemed past prime, Mayweather has interest in reviving Ishe's career...

Ishe is a good fighter and it will be a good fight.

Ishe will forever lose big fights on pts

Besides, Taylor looked decent for most of the Truax fight. I was kinda hoping to see the Latin Snake get squashed.

Jermain Taylor? The guy who has been savaged in 4 out of his last 7 fights, including 3 brutal KO's? The guy who in April went 10 with the world renowned Caleb Truax? The guy who's family is concerned about his health?

Come on man.
