Jermain Taylor didn't spend too much time thinking about Jeff Lacy's retirement because he knew Lacy's claim of retirement was just a ploy to get more money. On Monday, Lacy got a new contract, one that made him happy and puts Taylor vs. Lacy back on the calendar for November 15.

Taylor who recently returned home after vacationing in Cancun, Mexico, is quoted by Chris Givens of in regards to Lacy's abrupt retirement last week.

Quoted in the publication, Taylor stated: “I knew he (Lacy) was just playing; he just wanted some more money. I’m just glad he came to his senses. I had a great little vacation. I took some time off, and now, I’m ready to get to boxing. It looks like Jeff is, too.”
