Jermain Taylor reportedly puts home up for sale

Jermain Taylor's boxing career was resurrected last week, at least on paper, and now he's looking to sell his home, where he allegedly shot his cousin last month.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Jermain Taylor is selling his 39-acre estate in Little Rock, Arkansas, according to a report at TMZ, which comes just days after the 36-year-old fighter won the IBF middleweight title from Sam Soliman in Mississippi.

Taylor is also currently in the process of dealing with a legal matter that took place at the home, where he allegedly shot his cousin last month.

The report says that the home has an asking price of $1.2 million.

As far as Taylor's boxing career goes, that's a complicated discussion. Obviously, the legal matters at hand could entirely derail his comeback, and even if they don't, there's a question of whether or not Taylor, who has been perceived as a shot fighter for years, is really in more danger holding the belt than he was making a soft charge toward the belt, an assisted push that owes a lot to the political clout of adviser Al Haymon.
