Jermain Taylor - Domestic Violence Charges Are Dropped

Arkansas prosecutors have dropped domestic violence charges against former middleweight world champion Jermain Taylor after his accuser halted contact with authorities.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports Taylor was scheduled to stand trial on a felony terroristic threatening charge and a misdemeanor domestic battery charge. But on Monday, prosecutors said they haven’t been able to find or contact the woman who levied the accusations.

Police in the Little Rock suburb of Maumelle arrested Taylor in July 2017 on a disturbance call. A woman alleged that Taylor bit her on the arm and face and threatened to kill her.

Taylor suffered a brutal knockout at the hands of Arthur Abraham in 2009, as part of the Super Six super middleweight tournament.

He took off from boxing for two years before mounting a comeback, that saw him capture the IBF middleweight crown with an unexpected dominating win over Sam Soliman in 2014.

But before he could cash in on the big title win, Taylor was involved in a variety of legal issues that saw him get arrested for several violent crimes.

He’s currently serving a six-year suspended sentence after pleading guilty in 2015 to nine charges, including shooting his cousin in the leg.

IN OTHER NEWS: This past Friday night, Tyrone Crawley, Jr. and Ricardo Garcia fought to an eight-round majority draw before a capacity crowd at SugarHouse Casino in a junior welterweight bout.

The fantastic nine-bout show was promoted by King's Promotions.

It seemed that Garcia was leading the action by landing combinations on the ropes. Crawley tried to keep the fight at the center of the ring by trying to lead with his left and flicking out the jab. Garcia dictated the action, but the judges did not see it that way as two of the voters saw the fight even at 76-76 and a 3rd judge had it 79-73 for Garcia.

Garcia, 140.7 lbs of Dominican Republic is 14-3-1. Crawley, Jr., 138.5 lbs of Philadelphia, PA 7-1-1.

Poindexter Knight remained undefeated by winning a six-round unanimous decision over Gregory Averil Young in a welterweight bout.

Knight was in control of the bout and then in round five with a powerful right hook. Knight landed several more hard shots, but was unable to finish him,.

Knight, 149.9 lbs of Philadelphia won on all cards by 60-53 tallies, and is now 5-0. Young, 147.4 lbs of Hoover, AL is 4-1.

I have always been of fan of the guy, and finally got to see him fight live in what would be his final pro fight. Certainly hope he can keep his issues in check, and get the meds and care…

Amazing how both Taylor and Pavlik, who shared wars for the ages, ended into serious trouble. Pavlik's fate looks much better now, though.
