Davis Faces Assault Complaints
Former IBF Junior Lightweight Champion Gervonta Davis is facing several assault complaints, including first-degree aggravated assault — a felony — from an Aug. 1 incident.
After a court appearance on Sept. 19, Davis is currently out of prison on $100,000 bail, and a preliminary court hearing is scheduled for Oct. 19.
The Baltimore Sun reports that the charges were not filed by police, but by a man who pressed charges with a District Court commissioner on Aug. 3. The warrant was not served until this week. No details on the incident from last month are known at this time.
Davis faces one count each of first-degree assault and second-degree assault. Davis also has active traffic cases against him. These include an incident in Baltimore County where he was going 80 mph in a 55 mph zone, and an incident in Howard County, where was following too close and driving on a suspended license.
Davis was last in the boxing ring on Aug. 26 as part of the undercard for Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor. Davis defeated Francisco Fonseca via eighth-round KO, but was still stripped of his IBF Junior Lightweight Title for failing to make weight.
This weekend, Davis tweeted out the following:
Keep ya chin up. I’m good
