SONNY TAYLOR was on the brink of going to prison and life may have taken a different path, but a stretch of community service at Vulcan Boxing Club where he helped build an allotment turned things around.
He initially planned to campaign at Heavyweight, but after taking a nutritionist onboard decided Cruiserweight was within his reach.
Taylor who is trained by Seb Glazer signed with VIP Promotions in January 2019 and has done little wrong so far.
One of his wins came on points against tried and trusted journeyman Elvis Dube.
His one fight in 2020, came in February when Pawel Strykowski was stopped in five rounds. He gave more away 60lb when he boxed in June 2021, but still managed to floor Phil Williams enroute to a clear points win over four rounds.
Taylor returned to his home town in October 2021 on and body shots accounted for Cameroon’s Christian Donfack inside two rounds.
He has gained great experience in sparring working with top class boxers including Bob Ajisafe, Jack Massey, Richard Riakporhe, Craig Richards and Dec Spelman.
