Froch v Taylor part II?

This is May, 2009

JERMAIN Taylor is unlikely to box again until September after being beaten by Nottingham's Carl Froch in his bid for the WBC super-middleweight title.

But American TV company Showtime senior vice-president Ken Hershman is keen to stage a re-match between the two fighters - even if it is in England.

"It was such a compelling fight, such a dramatic fight, and what a dramatic ending. I don't think there is a TV executive alive who wouldn't want that fight again," said Taylor's promoter, Lou DiBella.

"For 10 rounds I think you saw a superb Jermain Taylor. The man fought his heart out and showed why he's one of the elite fighters in the world.

"I'd put him in with anyone in the division

"For Jermain, being active makes the difference. You can't afford to disappear for eight months.

"We'll take some time and then get right back in there because he belongs with the top boxers of his division."
