Tank had been on course to attend a hearing for the purposes of a trial relating to a count of bodily harm, but now that is no longer the case.
It is claimed that the victim had informed the authorities that she had decided to drop the charges.
“The Defendant, in this case, is no longer on pretrial release,” Judge Catalina Avalos informed Davis and his legal team, according to a court record obtained by Boxing Scene.
“The prior Order(s) of Pretrial Release Conditions entered pursuant to F S 903 047 is/are hereby VACATED AND OF NO FURTHER FORCE OR EFFECT.”
This news is crucial in light of the following. Davis had already pleaded guilty to a separate hit-and-run incident, for which he had received a 90-day house arrest, three years probation and 200 hours of community service.
Therefore, any further turmoil for the new ‘face of boxing’ would have hampered his plans moving forward.
And with the lightweight division being tougher than ever, Davis has every chance to prove his doubters wrong once he comes out of his predicament.
