Jeff Lacy's retirement didn't last long. Lacy who retired last week over his discontent with the money he was offered to fight Jermain Taylor on November 15th, is no longer upset. Lacy got a new contract on Monday, one which makes him happy and back from retirement. New details of the contract have not been made public yet. Lacy had been upset at being offered $550,000 before the contract was renegotiated.

Quoted by Chris Givens of, Lacy stated: “I’m happier with the situation. There will be a fight with me and Jermain. This is a fight me and Jermain have talked about for a long time. Now we’re going to square off in the ring on Nov. 15."

Lacy went on to add: "I’m not only excited about this fight going off, I’m excited because this is something Jermain and I have been dreaming about for a long time.”
