Boxer Jermain Taylor -- My Shrink Says I'm Fine ... Judge Wants More Testing

Breaking News

Jermain Taylor's psychiatrist says the boxer has been a complete "gentleman" at his lockdown mental facility ever since he was arrested on gun charges ... and is begging the judge to let him out. 

As we previously reported, an Arkansas judge ordered Taylor to undergo a complete mental and physical evaluation after several disturbing incidents -- including an altercation at a parade where Taylor allegedly pulled a gun on a family and another incident where he shot his cousin

But today in court, Taylor's shrink told the judge that while Taylor has some signs of impulse control problems (possibly due to boxing) ... he ultimately recommended Taylor be released ... with a few caveats.

The shrink says Taylor would need to be monitored, needs random drug and booze testing, needs therapy and would be forbidden from possessing a gun. 

Taylor's shrink also said Jermain "seems to really want to change his life" and noted that when he's sober and away from guns, he's "not a danger."

However, the judge isn't sold quite yet -- and said he doesn't want to release Taylor until more tests are completed.
