By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - According to conflicting reports coming off the wire, Australian Boxer Shannan Taylor is either in the hospital fighting for his life or has been taken off life support (and died) following a drug overdose. It looks however that Taylor thankfully is still alive, but in critical condition as of Monday. This was confirmed in Australian media through a hospital spokesperson.

The spokesperson for Wollongong Hospital told ninemsn (an Australian based publication) that Taylor was admitted Monday morning and is still receiving medical care. The spokesperson confirmed that Taylor lies in critical condition.

In other Reports by the media, Barry Michael (an Australian Boxing legend and close friend to Taylor),  called a Melbourne radio station and reportedly stated that Taylor's life support was switched off at 10.30am. The media quoted Michael as being  "shattered" over the death of Taylor.  Micheal was also quoted as saying he had been in contact with Taylor  "every couple of days".

Taylor has admitted to having serious drug problems in the past.  It is not known what drug he overdosed on at this time.

Anthony Mundine who fought and defeated Taylor on points (2009) posted on his twitter page: "I just heard about Shannon (sic) Taylor!!! DRUGS is killing alot (sic) of in peace my man! He was a good guy!"

Our hopes and prayers go out to Taylor.  I truly hope the reports of his death are wrong, and I feel the Hospital reports are more accurate. If you believe in the power of prayer, I hope you join me in taking some time out to pray for Taylor.
