I get sad everytime i see Meldrick's name. He was a sensational talent.

Taylor could of, should of, didn't; Cervantes did.

It would not be easy, Taylor clearly would have his moments, bemusing Antonio at times. But in the end, maybe behind on points Cervantes would get to Taylor.

Cervantes late, possibly real late; TKO15

I believe Cervantes gets to him late after weathering the storm early.

Speed kills, but only for a while when you have Taylor's lack of defense. The jab and straight right begin connecting for Cervantes by the early middle rounds, and Taylor does well to see the final bell.

Cervantes. Too big, he had a reach and knew hoe to use it...this would be very important against TAylor...

Cervantes scores a couple of knockdowns on his way to a UD.

Are you a Philly guy??? I do think Meldrick would win this over 12 perhaps 8-4 0r 7-5..but destroyed is a bit of an overstatement...Not sure I would say anyone would DESTROY Cervantes....Perhaps you need to revisit him? also as much as I like Meldrick, even at his best he never really destroyed anyone..he may have put on a clinic, but I am not ready to believe he could duplicate what Locche did in the first encounter.

Depends which Cervantes shows up but whilst he sometimes went down the gears after establishing his range Meldrick didn't have the best engine.

Cervantes decision.
