Abdusalamov vs. Bisbal

Taylor defeats Cayo; Abdusalamov stops Bisbal

taylor454By Bill Phanco: Light welterweight contender Victor Cayo (31-4, 22 KO’s) suffered a disappointing 8th round stoppage loss to Emmanuel Taylor (17-1, 12 KO’s) tonight at the Resorts Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Cayo seemingly had the fight in the bag until getting put down with a series of solid right hands from the 22-year-old Taylor in the 8th. Taylor then hammered the hurt Cayo with several more shots after he got back up to his feet, and the fight was then halted by referee Benjy Esteves Jr. at 1:11 of the round.

Cayo fought reasonably well until getting hurt late in the 7th round, and then finished off in the 8th. Cayo knocked Taylor down in the 5th round with a sweeping right hook to the head. Cayo was effective when fighting out of the southpaw stance, but he only rarely used this stance despite the success he had in the fight when he was using it. Continue reading
