Quincy Taylor (born July 18, 1963 in Dallas, Texas), was a professional boxer in the Middleweight (160lb) division.

Taylor, a southpaw, turned pro in 1986. In 1987, he nearly KO´d Sugar Ray Leonard whilst sparring in preparation for Leonard's match against World Middleweight Champion 'Marvelous' Marvin Hagler. In 1994, he landed a shot at WBC Middleweight Title holder Julian Jackson. Taylor scored a shocking upset TKO victory over Jackson, but lost the title in his next fight to Keith Holmes. After a two year layoff and a victory in 1998, followed by a three year layoff and a victory in 2001, Taylor retired from boxing. In 2010, he works at Fed-ex for the City of Lufkin. He coaches amateur boxers at the Boys and Girls Club and trains along with them.
