On Friday night in Atlantic City, junior welterweight Emanuel “The Tranzforma” Taylor stopped former world title challenger Victor Cayo in the eighth round in the main event of ESPN Friday Night Fights.
Held at Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the win for Taylor was his second big knockout in 2013, having kicked off the year with a sixth round stoppage of Raymond Serrano on January 25, which was televised on Shobox.
“This was a terrific performance by Emanuel. He exhibited a quiet confidence before the fight and took care of business in the ring. Even when he was dropped in the fifth, he kept his poise and scored big in the sixth,” said DeGuardia.
“It was a very solid fight for fans watching the broadcast and bodes very well for Taylor’s future as he is a TV fighter fans will want to watch.”
The back to back impressive wins for Taylor likely earned him an opportunity to fight in a title eliminator.
For Star Boxing this was the fourth straight big win in 2013, which took place in front of a huge crowd and was nationally televised.
“We’re off to a tremendous start in 2013, our fighters are winning huge bouts in front of big crowds on national television and we look forward to keeping the streak intact throughout the year” continued DeGuardia.
