Johnstown boxer Andres Taylor will travel to Caracas, Venezuela for a shot at a world title later this month.
Taylor, who is 21-2-2 with eight knockouts, will fight for the WBA World cruiserweight championship against Panamanian titleholder Guillermo Jones at The El Poliedro de Caracas on Oct. 27.
“I’m putting my life on the line for this title,” said Taylor, 33, during a Saturday telephone interview from his training camp in Ambridge, Beaver County. “This is the pinnacle of your career. This is the Super Bowl of boxing. It doesn’t get any bigger.”
