Meldrick Taylor said he wasn't thinking about the recent past, but he sure wasn't going to give history a chance to repeat in the final round against Aaron Davis on Saturday night. Taylor had the fight well in hand after 11 rounds, and the crowd of 2,800 at the Convention Center knew it. But Taylor still was booed as he circled rapidly around the tired Davis en route to the World Boxing Assn. welterweight championship.
