Charles (Bud) Taylor won the vacant National Boxing Association World Bantamweight Title in 1927 by defeating Tony Canzoneri. He abandoned it two years later, unable to make the 118lb. weight limit any longer, once again leaving the bantam title vacant. The title then became contested by many of "The Golden Bantams" of the 1920s.

Bud Taylor figured in two ring tragedies. Frankie Jerome of the Bronx, died after being stopped by Taylor in the 12th round in Madison Square Garden in 1924. Sencio "Clever Sencio" Moldez of the Philippines died in his hotel room two hours after his 10-rounder with Taylor in Milwaukee in 1926.

Reports in 1958 said that Taylor had gained considerable weight and was over 200lbs. He was working at a public relations job for a freight loading business when he died in Los Angeles.
