Jermain Taylor is rangy, fast and imposing athlete with great upper-body strength. Taylor’s mind scrambling right uppercut, overhand right and heavy left jab have helped make Taylor a rich man. Despite his fine offensive skills, Taylor has become a more cautious fighter that tends to get caught on the ropes too often and run out of gas late in fights. Taylor has above-average defensive ability but his balance is only average and he can be predictable. Taylor does have a good set of whiskers but he has some wear and tear on his body.
