Taylor, 8-1-1 (4KO’s), will look to get back in the win column following his first loss, a six round war against Leo Bercier on June 27th that had the huge crowd in Youngstown, Ohio on their feet from start to finish cheering on the excellent two way battle. This will be Taylor’s third bout in York, winning both of his previous bouts.
Ashworth, 5-4-0 (1KO), last fought on June 28, 2008, stopping Terry Broughton in the second round in Waveland, Mississippi.
