Jeff Lacy is fighting Jermain Taylor - Retirement is Off, Fight is On!
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing (July 28, 2008)  
It would seem Jeff Lacy's retirement plans are gone with the wind. A report out today by John Cotey and published in the St. Petersburg Times, has Lacy's attorney and adviser, Jim Wilkes telling the publications Lacy will be fighting Jermain Taylor on November 15.

Quoted by the publication, Wilkes stated: "I'm telling you, as Jeff's attorney, a deal has been reached." Wilkes went on to add: " It took a lot of work, a lot of effort, a lot of discussion, but we got it done."

Late last week Lacy claimed he was retiring, blaming money issues and the shady side of boxing. Wilkes and Lacy's representing promotional company (Golden Boy Promotions) returned to negotiations and made a deal more suitable to Lacy.
