Taylor Shows Little Ring Rust but Falls by Decision in Pittsburgh


Anthony Taylor knew he was going to have his hands full going into Saturday nights super bantamweight matchup against heralded Ukrainian transplant, Oleg Dovhun.

Taylor took the undefeated Dovhun who now lives and trains in Pittsburgh the distance in their six-round matchup at the historical Priory Grand Hall in Pittsburgh.

While Taylor (4-3) has been inactive for over a year since his last fight in May of 2017, the 27-year-old Youngstown native proved he belongs back in the ring.

Dovhun, 24, improved to 6-0 with the victory.

In the evening's main event, fellow Ukrainian transplant now fighting out of Pittsburgh Lyubomyr Pinchuk claimed the vacant American Boxing Federation USA Cruiserweight title with a unanimous decision victory over 27-year-old Lamont Capers of Hawley, Pennsylvania.

With the victory, the 22-year-old Pinchuk is now 6-1 while Capers fell to 9-13-4.

Taylor is slated to be back in action in November in Youngstown at the Palermo Center in Campbell on Thanksgiving Eve.
