The undefeated Rakhim Chakhkiev (16-0-0 12 KO) entered as the No.16 cruiserweight in the world while Andres Taylor (21-3-2 8 KO) entered as the No.71. Chakhkiev vs Taylor is on the undercard of Wladimir Klitschko vs Mariusz Wach. 

Taylor was expected to go in and lose easily and he did on the cards as Rakhim Chakhkiev won a unanimous decision, with scores of 99-89, 100-89, 100-89, but he put up a tough fight and I think them scores were a little wide.

Taylor gave a good account of himself and should find himself in more meanigful bouts sooner rather than later.
