Back in February, WBA Lightweight and WBA Super-Featherweight Champion Gervonta Davis was charged with simple battery domestic violence following an incident in Coral Gables, Florida. Davis was seen grabbing and yelling at his girlfriend and the mother of his children
Now, new footage was provided by TMZ (NSFW) that provides further details regarding the situation. Davis confronted his girlfriend and the seen continued in the back area of the basketball game he was at. You can see him pushing and shoving her and then getting in an altercation with another man.
The man appeared to be filming the incident as the woman was attempting to stop Davis. Following the incident, the 25-year-old Davis ended up posting (and deleting) the following on Instagram, denying he did anything:
“I never once hit her, yea I was aggressive and told her come on… that’s the mother of my child I would never hurt her other than that happy New Years.. January was trash.”
In 2017, Davis was arrested for aggravated assault, with the charges (made by a friend) dropped while in court. The next year, Davis and another man got into a fist fight in Washington, D.C., with no time missed from boxing.
Davis won three fights in 2019, the last fight a TKO-win over rival Yuriorkis Gamboa back in December. During the build-up to the fight, Davis got physical before the fight, causing a scene that required multiple people, including the police, to intervene.
Will the commission anything about this now that new evidenced has been released?
