Jermain Taylor today beat Sam Soliman by UD. Taylor dropped Soliman numerous times throughout the fight and was simply to strong for Soliman. The purses for this fight were massive with Soliman paid over one million dollars to face Taylor. Taylor now has several options, however he will also have to beat some serious criminal charges. Al Haymon put a lot of money down for Taylor to get this fight and Taylor repaid Haymon by defeating Soliman convincingly.
Potential fights for Taylor now include Quillin and Golovkin. This should be an interesting year for Taylor to see where he goes next and if he will be able to fight again soon, considering the serious criminal charges levelled against him.
