Taylorís best and only good chance will come early. He is a fast starter who can knock just about anyone down, but if Abraham is able to hold him off, the fight should even out around the sixth stanza. With his deceptive cunning and his power, I see the Armenian beginning to break Taylor down by mixing thudding body work with punishing shots upstairs. As Taylor tires, Abraham will get stronger. At this point, Taylorís stamina will again desert him and Arthur will discover that the stoppages at the hands of "The Ghost" and "The Cobra have left Taylor damaged and vulnerable for a brutal closure and thatís exactly what Abraham will perpetrate around the tenth or eleventh round.
Abraham caught with a fading Taylor in the last round and knocked him unconscious with a missed left hook followed by straight right that came from hell. Sooner or later, it appeared Taylorís hands would drop from fatigue and thatís what seemed to happen.
Fighting in explosive spurts and being economical, ďKing ArthurĒ blended his assault with body and head shots throughout leaving no doubt as to whether he belongs in this tournament.
As for ďBad Intentions,Ē the stoppages at the hands of "The Ghost" and "The CobraĒ clearly left him damaged and vulnerable for a brutal closure. And thatís exactly what Abraham perpetrated.
