Jermain Taylor returns to ring

By

 Super middleweights Jermain Taylor and Andre Dirrell have a lot in common. They were both U.S. Olympic bronze medal winners, Taylor in 2000 and Dirrell in 2004. They were both original participants in Showtime's Super Six World Boxing Classic. And they both dropped out of the tournament and were forced into long layoffs after suffering head injuries in Super Six bouts against Germany's Arthur Abraham…The 33-year-old Taylor went through numerous medical exams from some of the best doctors in the world, including at the Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic, and was cleared to fight.
