Boxing – 1985 – 6 Round Junior Welterweight Bout – David Taylor Vs Al Laddie


This 6-round Junior Welterweight bout took place at the Omni in Atlanta on August 29, 1985 between Al Laddie and David Taylor….early in both fighters careers….as David Talyor, who hailed from Atlanta, GA would end up having 64 professional bouts….while ending his career with a record of 25 – 36 – 3….whereas his opponent Al Laddie from Bay City, MI….would decide boxing wasn’t for him after 10 professional fights…..as he ended his short career with a 5 – 4 – 1 record. 

We at ImaSportsphile would venture to say that this fight seen herewith ws dare say the only time either Taylor or Laddie were on live television for one of their fights….which makes this video extremely rare footage of these two fighteres careers…..but all said and done….this was a pretty dang good fight that went to decision.
