Olympic gold medalist Meldrick Taylor used a quick left jab and a crisp right hook to bloody Cubanito Perez early and scored a unanimous 10-round decision in their junior-welterweight bout at Atlantic City, N.J.

Taylor (16-0-1) dominated from the opening bell, using superior quickness to land lefts and rights almost at will. There were no knockdowns. Perez, a Cuban native living in Santa Ana, is 34-3.
