JERMAIN TAYLOR GRANTED BAIL; SOLIMAN-TAYLOR APPEARS ON
By Scott Shaffer

Ex-champ accused of shooting his cousin

Former world middleweight champion, who recently signed for an October title shot, has been arrested in Pulaski County, Arkansas for allegfedly shooting his cousin. According to Araknsas' KTHV (TV11), an altercation took place at Taylor's home, with Taylor allegedly shooting his cousin several times.The cousin is listed in serious condition. UPDATE: Arkansas Online reports that a judge has set a very low bail amount, $25,000, and approved Taylor to leave Arkansas and train in Florida for his October IBF title challenge against Sam Soliman. Indications are that Taylor will plead self-defense. Taylor won the undisputed world middleweight championship from Bernard Hopkins in 2005, and defeated the future hall of famer in a rematch. He lost the championship to Kelly Pavlik in 2007, and his career began to slide with brutal knockout losses to Carl Froch and Arthur Abraham in 2009. Taylor reportedly suffered a brain bleed after the Abraham loss, but returned to boxing in 2011 and ran off four wins against mid-level opponents. His manager, the powerful Al Haymon, recently secured an IBF championship opportunity against Sam Soliman, a 40 year-old, light punching but extremely crafty Australian.
