This is the last thing that the new ‘face of boxing’ needed following his massive win over Ryan Garcia.
In a bout that reportedly sold over $1.2 million in pay-per-view buys, Davis’ popularity with the fan base has been damaged somewhat.
It is alleged that Davis was found guilty of leaving the scene after bodily injury, driving with an inadequate license, as well as going over a red light, and not disclosing the property damage.

Jyair Smith, who was pregnant, was one of the four passengers inside. As a result of his guilty plea, Davis is required to complete 200 hours of community service and will be under probation for three years, as the house arrest takes place at his trainer Calvin Ford’s home.
But given the adversity that Davis has managed to overcome after growing up in the crime-ridden area of West Baltimore, this is just another setback that ‘Tank Davis’ will have to contend with.
