28.03.04 – By Jim Amato – Is Jermaine Taylor the future of the middleweight division? I’m not sure but he made a definite statement in halting Alex Bunema in seven one sided rounds. Only the courage of Bunema kept him around that long. Although Taylor was the favorite Bunema was a competent opponent coming into this battle. In the end Taylor made Alex look like a second rate fighter. That was only because Jermaine looked that good! Taylor’s jab was a thing of beauty as he punished Bunema all night long with it. You could see it was just a matter of time before Taylor connected with the overhand right. He was trying to set it up throughout the fight. The end came at 2:16 of the seventh after Alex had been down twice. No sense going on. He was outclassed and beaten. Bunema drops to 24-4-2 while Taylor takes his unbeaten ledger to 20-0 with 15 KO’s. I heard someone say Taylor versus Tito. It might be a little soon for that but Jermaine Taylor has arrived!
