Tarver is Jailed in Florida Due to Nevada Arrest Warrant

by David P. Greisman 

Antonio Tarver was taken into police custody in Florida on Saturday night after a Highway Patrol trooper discovered that Nevada had an open warrant out for the former light heavyweight champion’s arrest, according to reports from The Tampa Tribune and WFLA.

The Tribune said Tarver “was arrested on a warrant for jumping bail and failure to appear” in court in Clark County, Nev.

WFLA said Tarver’s case stems from charges of “insufficient check and theft,” dating back to June 2013.

Both outlets report that Tarver was being held without bond as of Sunday afternoon.

Tarver, who is now 45 years old, is like his former rivals Roy Jones Jr. and Glen Johnson in that he’s continuing to fight despite being far past his prime. After losing to Chad Dawson in their 2009 rematch, Tarver moved up to heavyweight to outpoint Nagy Aguilera in October 2010, went back to cruiserweight to stop Danny Green in July 2011, had a June 2012 draw with Lateef Kayode overturned due to Tarver testing positive for a banned substance, and then came back again in November 2013 at heavyweight to score a technical knockout over some guy named Mike Sheppard.

That brought Tarver’s record to 30-6 with 21 knockouts and 1 no contest. This May will mark a decade since he knocked out Roy Jones.
