Edwin Taylor (6-3) is walking away with new gold around his waist, as he finished Cameron McIntosh (4-1) in the amateur main event at Big Guns 25 to claim the RFO middleweight title.
Taylor immediately took the fight to the ground, slamming McIntosh just seconds into the bout. From there, he locked McIntosh’s right arm in a crucifix position, and began to work ground and pound.
McIntosh tried to work his way out, but the top game from Taylor was too strong, and after several unanswered clean blows, the fight was stopped just 1:17 in.
It’s the first amateur title win for Taylor in four tries. Since making his debut in 2011, he’s only come up short in three different title fights.
