Emanuel "Tranzformer" Taylor has lost a 10-round unanimous decision to undefeated Chris Algieri tonight at the Paramount Theater in Huntington, NY.
Taylor, much like his first loss to Prenice Brewer in November of 2011, got off to a very slow start in the contest. Taylor seemed to do better in the middle rounds but could not pick up the pace any more and Algieri, who showed some very quick and accurate hands throughout the contest, coasted to the victory.
The judge's scorecards were 98-92 and 97-93 (twice). Taylor's record drops to 17-2, 12 KO's. Algieri is now 19-0, eight KO's.
