Can you name current fighters who seem to disdain the notion of cherry picking?




Some guys simply don’t know what the notion of cherry picking meant . They take on all comers. Sometimes, they pay dearly for it, but not always. One obvious choice to me is Jermain “Bad Intentions” Taylor. Heck, he fought Bernard Hopkins twice and Kelly Pavlik twice. That’s enough for an entire career. But he also duked with Arthur Abraham, Carl Froch, a worn Jeff Lacey, Cory Spinks, Kassim Ouma, Ronald “Winky” Wright, an undefeated Daniel Edourad, William Joppy, Sam Hill, Grady Brewer, and in his very first fight, Chris Walsh (17-4-1 coming in). Only one of his opponents had a losing record (it was 3-4). If you add up the won-loss records of his opponents, the combined result would be eye brow-raising.

Bottom line: Jermain Taylor does not know what cherry picking is all about.
