Arkansas police are investigating a claim from a 27 year old woman that former middleweight champion Jermain Taylor raped last Friday (May 18) after a failed “sex for money” arrangement.

Police were called to a Maumelle hotel after 9:30 p.m. after a disturbance call. The unidentified woman told police that she arrived at a hotel in Maumelle to meet Taylor. They argued over money, causing the woman to become frightened and flee the room. She subsequently fell down a flight a stairs and injured an ankle.

While Taylor was not there when authorities arrived, a police report confirmed that hotel manager Chaten Patel verified that Taylor had been there earlier.

The woman made the rape accusation after a hospital stay and arrest for suspicion of carrying a controlled substance.

At press time, no charges tied to the rape claim have been announced.

Jermain Taylor last fought on April 20, surviving a late knockdown to take a unanimous decision win over Caleb Traux.


Jermain Taylor isn’t the first nor will he be the last man to pay for sex or cheat on his wife. Nonetheless, this whole situation is very sloppy. If you’re gonna do dirt, at least try not to publicly embarrass your family. Allegedly arguing with and chasing a prostitute at a hotel is not a good look.

There’s no point speculating on the rape charge until more information comes out. Until then, we can only hope that his shortcomings were strictly of a moral nature and not a criminal one. Either way, the Taylor household is not a happy home these days.

    smh im surprised he would be so blatant to argue and chase a hooker thru a hotel when hes married family man… i dont think he would of raped her per se, but he put himself in a stupid situation that he should of known better… women who accuse men of rape when they havnt should face the same sentence that a man would for the actual crime… hope hes innocent…

    herbie hide was accused of it recently, it was such a bogus case that the police and lawyers actually lol in the interview… he spoke on it last night on ‘bunce’s boxing hour’ i was cracking up
