Boxer Arrested After FBI Takes Cutmanís Q-Tip For DNA

Martin Tuckerís latest win might also prove to be the night that led to his greatest defeat.

Thatís because the FBI suspected the junior welterweight of being one of three men who robbed a bank in Michigan back in 2009. Nearly three years later, an investigator watched Tucker win a four-rounder over Devarise Clayton, and then seized a Q-tip that Tuckerís corner man had inserted in the fighterís bloody nose, according to The Detroit News.

DNA from the Q-Tip apparently matched that of a ski mask police found after tracking down the vehicle used in the robbery. The mask was among evidence found in a wooded nearby, the newspaper said.

Tucker was arrested just this Tuesday, according to the article. Another suspect was arrested last year.

Aprilís fight was Tuckerís first win in his past seven fights, but years ago he had put together an impressive batch of victories, taking a decision over Rashad Holloway very early in Hollowayís career, winning a split decision over tough gatekeeper Doel Carrasquillo and then beating then-undefeated prospect Michael Torres.

Tuckerís win over Torres, who was 13-0 at the time, was chronicled in this fantastic article by BoxingSceneís own Thomas Gerbasi:

After beating Torres, Tucker lost to several recognizable names: Lanard Lane, Sharif Bogere, Ivan Popoca and Nick Casal.

The 32-year-old is now 8-10 with 3 knockouts. His boxing career is suddenly the least of his worries, though.

Someone in Hollywood is going to use this for a episode for some tv drama or possibly some movie.

[QUOTE=Brickfist]why didnt he burn the mask and vehicle ? anyone who watches tv knows to do that[/QUOTE] Anyone who has ever robbed someone in real life, knows the **** that happens on TV isn't real... He could have at least took the ski mask though
