Taylor issues challenge
Phil Taylor
Taylor considered quitting

Phil "The Power" Taylor would love to take on fellow darts world champion Andy Fordham.

But PDC title-holder Taylor says a match against his BDO rival, nicknamed "The Viking", is unlikely to take place.

"I'd play him every Saturday night," Taylor told Radio Five Live. "It would be great for darts.

"But every year the challenge goes out but the BDO or whoever the powers that be just won't do it."

I can't run around like I used to

Fordham clinched his first world title by beating Mervyn King 6-3 on Sunday while Taylor won his 11th world crown by edging past Kevin Painter 7-6 a week earlier.

Taylor considered retiring after his sudden-death win but has vowed to play on.

"I'm not going to retire now, although I was thinking about it, but I am going to cut down," said the Stoke star.

"I can't run around like I used to."
