JERMAIN TAYLOR VS. CORY SPINKS 

Taylor and Spinks to rumble in Memphis.

After December’s decision against Kassim Ouma, the people’s champ journeys across the river for a “Border Battle” against former heavyweight champion Leon Spinks’ son Cory. Maybe the Ouma scare shook JT out of his knock-out obsession and he can get back to being that technically proficient fighter with a sweet jab we all know and love. It’s pretty boring, but I’d rather fall asleep to the fight than not be able to brag about Arkansas having a world champion. HBO will host the telecast (not pay-per-view). Something to look forward to: a contract dispute might make this the last fight where you have to endure Larry Merchant’s drunk, head-scratchingly bizarre commentary. If you can’t make it to Memphis and don’t have HBO, you can catch the fight at Sticky Fingerz for $20.

9:15 p.m. Saturday, May 19.

FedEx Forum, Memphis. $25-$750.
