Taylor's other two career losses came at the hands of Kelly Pavlik
Trainer Robert McCracken believes Carl Froch's final-round defeat of Jermain Taylor should finally earn him the respect he deserves from British fans.
Froch was heading for a points defeat but unleashed a barrage of punches to stop Taylor with 13 seconds remaining in his first defence of the WBC crown.
"We won't get a Carl Froch again for a long, long time," said McCracken.
"He is a special fighter and he needs to be embraced in Britain because it's a bit of a joke really."
The impact of Froch's win in Connecticut on Saturday was reduced because it was not shown live on television in the UK.
But McCracken believes that Froch's most significant scalp yet, combined with his all-action style, will keep his fan base growing.
"Carl Froch hasn't been acknowledged but surely he'll be acknowledged now. I was a kid and I used to watch the Tommy Hearns fights but this kid punches every bit as hard as any of them," he said.
"His knockout record is phenomenal and anyone who has gone the distance with him has either tried to survive or has not tried to win. He is a phenomenal athlete.
"Carl Froch is a special fighter, the only fighter I've ever come across that you just know he's going to win, be it in sparring or in a fight, you know he's going to get them.
"It could be the last round, it could be the first round; he's a phenomenal puncher."
It was only the second time that Nottingham's Froch had fought across the Atlantic and McCracken revealed his charge had won despite initially being overawed by the occasion.
"The nerves kind of got to him a little bit in the changing room and he wasn't himself. Taylor's a top, top fighter who beat Bernard Hopkins twice so he was a little bit nervous," said McCracken.
