NFL player accused of attacking someone? Suspended.
NBA player accused of assault? Suspended.
Boxer accused of SHOOTING SOMEONE?? Well, you can fight for the title!!!
At least, that's what happened last night when Jermain Taylor -- who won the IBF Middleweight title in Mississippi ... just 2 months after he was arrested for allegedly shooting his cousin.
As we first reported, cops say Taylor FESSED UP to shooting his cousin during a domestic dispute in Arkansas back in August.
But despite the fact he was arrested for 1st degree battery and aggravated assault -- the powers that be in the boxing world ALLOWED Taylor to get in the ring and fight for the title.
