Jermain Taylor accused of rape!
Former middleweight world champion Jermain Taylor has been accused of rape by a 27-year old woman, however there have been no charges filed yet. The woman claims that she met with Taylor to have sex for money but ended up being raped, according to the Arkansas News Bureau.
The woman was taken into police custody on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance. Officers arriving at the hotel on Friday night were told by the woman that "she had gone to the hotel for the purpose of having sex with Taylor for money, and they began arguing. She told officers that she became frightened during the argument and fled, and in doing so she fell down a flight of stairs and injured her ankle." She only said she had been raped when she arrived at the hospital.
Police were unable to find Taylor at the hotel but the manager confirmed that the boxer had been staying at the establishment but left before officers arrived.
Taylor's last boxing match came against Caleb Truax, where he won by unanimous decision. He currently has a record of 30 wins, 4 losses and 1 draw. He has only had two fights since a two year absence from the ring.
