Gervonta Davis Arrested In Florida, Days Ahead Of Fight Vs. Hector Luis Garcia

He also awaits a February 16 trial in Baltimore.

Gervonta Davis has been hit with another obstacle. 

The undefeated WBA lightweight titleholder was arrested Tuesday evening and faces one count of domestic violence charge of battery causing bodily harm, according to Broward County Sheriff’s Office records and multiple news reports. 

As of Wednesday morning, the knockout star remains in custody at Broward County’s Main Jail Bureau in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, ESPN reported via a jail official, where he was training for his upcoming fight against Hector Luis Garcia on January 7 in Washington D.C. 

Bond is reportedly set at $1,000.  

Davis previously faced two misdemeanor battery charges in February 2020 where he “was observed battering his former girlfriend,” police said in Coral Gables, Florida. That case was dismissed on December 13. 

Davis’ team declined comment. Representatives from Showtime were not available for comment, and PBC does not comment on active legal matters. 

The 28-year-old was already awaiting a February 16 trial in his hometown of Baltimore. There, he faces multiple misdemeanor charges from an alleged November 2020 hit-and-run. His legal team proposed a plea agreement, but it was rejected by a Baltimore City Circuit court judge on September 22. 

He also faces a civil suit. 

The outcome of that trial and Tuesday’s arrest puts his next fight into question – which is about 11 days out – and, ultimately, his anticipated grudge match against former WBC interim lightweight champion Ryan Garcia, which has been teased for April.
