Meldrick Taylor Movie In The Works


PHILADELPHIA (August 15, 2013)—From the time he wrote down on a dresser drawer as an eight year old child that he would become a world champion, Meldrick Taylor had only one goal.

From being a prized amateur and a 1984 Olympic Gold Medal winner and then in 1988 finally realizing his dream when he knocked out Buddy McGirt to become the IBF Jr. Welterweight champion, Taylor wasn’t done.

After making two defenses, Taylor then took on his greatest challenge against then 68-0 future legend Julio Cesar Chavez.

Taylor went in as a big underdog but dominated the bout until he was controversially stopped just two seconds before the end of the fight.

Now, along with Taylor’s business partner Damon Feldman, a movie that will chronicle the life of Taylor is being shopped throughout Hollywood.

The working title is “Two Seconds from Glory”, an obvious reference to the memorable fight with Chavez.

“I am in talks with a few companies now, this is the Next Big Boxing movie, “says Damon Feldman.


“The feedback has been tremendous and we have reached out to a few A-list actors who we feel would be perfect for the movie.  They all have shown a great amount of interest.  There are so many actors who are big boxing fans and a couple in particular know Meldrick’s story very well and when they were presented the script, they were very interested.  We promise it will be a tremendous movie with some big name actors taking part in the film”  


Taylor will be signing copies of his book TONIGHT at the Deck in Essington as part of his promotional company “Champions of Tomorrow” presents its 2nd fight card
