Is A Taylor Made Replacement In The Cards?
The Mosley's have informed Boxingtalk.com that a gall bladder infection will prevent Diobelys Hurtado from facing Shane Mosley on February 19. Mosley still hopes to fight on the card, but the clock is ticking and if an opponent is not solidified soon, (perhaps the end of business today) he will be forced to pull himself off the show. Sources from Sixth Avenue have indicated to Boxingtalk.com that HBO would hope to put undefeated middleweight Jermain Taylor on the undercard in the event of a Mosley pull out. Two weeks ago, Lou DiBella told Boxingtalk.com that IBF #1 middleweight contender Sam Soliman was the frontrunner for Taylor's next fight, however HBO's offer to Team Taylor on short notice would probably have to be a handsome ransom for a fight as tough as Soliman, so a lesser opponent would also be a possibility. Boxingtalk.com will continue to keep you updated as more information comes in. Until then, Remember Where You Heard It First! (11:15 AM ET)
