8CountNews just spoke with a very concerned Lou DiBella and got an update on the current situation with Jermain Taylor. DiBella sounded visibly shook up over today's news that Taylor was arrested today on gun charges and endangering the welfare of minors.

Taylor was scheduled to defend his world title Vs. Sergio Mora on February 6th, in Biloxi, MS. DiBella informed 8CountNews that the show will go on as scheduled but a replacement for Taylor is being sought.

More importantly, DiBella is concerned with the welfare of his fighter, and told 8CN, "I'm very concerned for Jermain Taylor's well being. That said, unfortunately actions have consequences."

Taylor is looking at trial for another case that occurred last year in Little Rock where he shot his cousin Tyrone Hinton and was charged with aggravated assault, and released on a 25,000 dollar bond. Taylor plead not guilty, and is awaiting trial. With today's actions, he'll no doubt be looking at further trouble. Missing a boxing match at this point seems to be the very least of his troubles.

Concerning the February 6th card, Dibella told 8CN, "I will hopefully have an announcement within 24 hours on who will be facing Mora."

Stay tuned to 8CN for further updates.
