Thaboxingvoice.com has learned that the Emmanuel Taylor- Antonio Orozco fight is back on after being postponed last month due to a cut suffered by Orozco in training. The two junior welterweights will meet on May 9th in a 10 round bout, presumably on the undercard of Canelo Alvarez and James Kirkland’s HBO main event, although nothing official has been announced.
Taylor and Orozco were originally scheduled to meet on March 12th as the co-feature to HBO Latino’s telecast which features Francisco Vargas vs. Will Tomlinson before the unfortunate injury suffered in Orozco’s camp.
Taylor made a decent account of himself in Cincinnati when he faced Adrien Broner. This would be a step up in the competition of Antonio Orozco, overall its a good scarp.
