Gervonta Davis Released From Jail, Pleads His Innocence In Instagram Post

It's unclear if this affects his upcoming fight.

Gervonta Davis is no longer in custody. 

The 28-year-old boxer was released from jail on Wednesday and has been issued a no-contact order in relation to Tuesday’s arrest. Two separate 911 calls revealed a female who claimed that Davis was “going to kill” her. 

The top lightweight contender took to social media and denied all the allegations against him. 

“Do not let these people misguide you all on this bullsh!t,” Davis stated in a since-deleted Instagram post, showing Davis watching “Frozen” with his daughter.  

“This was just yesterday, moments before me and my child mother had argument! Watching Frozen with my oldest daughter. I never put my hands on my child mother nor my f—ing daughter. Are you f—ing crazy!! Im (sic) not a monster I been quiet for too long.” 

The incident report states that Davis allegedly struck a woman on the right side of her head with a “closed hand type slap,” leaving a cut on her mouth, ESPN reported. 

Davis further claimed in the Instagram post that the accusations are an attempt to make money off of his name. 

“They rush to my child mother offering her 50k just to pressure charges… like they did with my first child mother, so bad they couldn’t get her so they got a lady they [claimed] she was into the mess. Also a lady that known for (suing) people for money reason.. they get her! Which I have to pay 300k to and I didn’t lay a finger on her or even know what this lady looks like.” 

That portion refers to Davis who was reportedly seen grabbing the mother of his other child during a February 2020 charity basketball game in Miami. He was arrested not too long after and was charged with two misdemeanor counts of simple battery. 

That case was eventually abandoned on December 13, according to Dady County Clerk of the Courts records. 

There has yet to be word on how Davis’ new charges affect his upcoming fight against Hector Luis Garcia on January 7 in Washington D.C. Davis was back in Florida for his training camp. 

Showtime and Premier Boxing Champions held a Zoom media call also on Wednesday that featured the six televised undercard fighters, but there was no mention of Davis-Garcia nor was there any branding. 

Representatives from Showtime and PBC have yet to comment on the incident and the status of the bout. 

January 7 was serving as a prelude to the anticipated grudge match between Davis and former interim lightweight champion Ryan Garcia. But that fight also had an obstacle in front of it, which is Davis’ February 16 trial for an alleged November 2020 hit-and-run incident.
