Lacy unretires: Lacy vs Taylor set for November 15!

According to Fightnews, Jeff Lacy's attorney and advisor Jim Wilkes has confirmed that Lacy vs Taylor is a done deal for November 15.

Jim Wilkes, Jeff Lacy's attorney and adviser, has confirmed to St. Peterburg Times boxing writer John Cotey that Lacy will return to the ring against Jermain Taylor on November 15. "I'm telling you, as Jeff's attorney, a deal has been reached," Wilkes said. "It took a lot of work, a lot of effort, a lot of discussion, but we got it done."

That was one of the shortest lived retirements I've ever seen in boxing. Smart move on the part of the Lacy camp. Lacy needs a Taylor fight at this stage of his career, which appears to be slowly dying. A win over Taylor would surely revive the Floridian's career. The fight will probably be televised on HBO.
