ANDRES TAYLOR RETURNS TO ACTION SATURDAY NIGHT
Cruiserweight contender Andres “TAYLOR MADE” Taylor returns to action Saturday night, August 1st at “THE BATTLE OF YORK 4”, an action packed evening of world class boxing presented by Chet Koerner’s TKO BOXING Promotions at the Sovereign Bank Baseball Stadium, home of the York Revolution.
Fighting out of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, Taylor, 8-1-1 (4KO’s), will square off against Lake Charles, Louisiana native Roy Ashworth, 5-4-0 (1KO) in a six round cruiserweight bout.
In his last start on June 27th, Taylor and Leo Bercier staged an excellent two-way war in Youngstown, Ohio with Taylor coming up short in the six round decision, his first loss.
Said Taylor, “The loss was a blessing in disguise, I’m much more focused now. I know exactly what mistakes I made in that fight and I won’t repeat them. I’ve trained harder and longer for this fight and can’t wait to get back in the ring.”
Known for his legion of fans in Pennsylvania, Taylor said, “There’s a huge number of the “TAYLOR MADE” army coming down to the fight in York. Their continued support has been terrific for me.”
Said Chet Koerner, “Andres and I have talked numerous times since the fight against Bercier and I’m confident he will get back on the winning track on Saturday night.”
Featuring seven professional and five amateur bouts, “THE BATTLE OF YORK 4” is headlined by a featherweight showdown between The Fighting Pride of Central Pennsylvania, Carney “BEEPER” Bowman and heavy handed Dominican Delvin Placencia.
