Boxing champion Gervonta Davis arrested for domestic violence

World boxing champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis was arrested on Tuesday for domestic violence in Florida, prison records show.

The 28-year-old boxing star was sentenced to Broward County Jail for the battery charge, records show.

Details of the arrest and the alleged domestic violence incident were not immediately available.

Davis was previously arrested for domestic violence. In 2020, he was captured on video forcefully grabbing his ex-girlfriend — and the mother of his child — by the throat during a charity basketball game at the University of Miami.

Davis turned himself in to police days after the video surfaced on Twitter and was charged with simple domestic violence.

The victim suffered lip and jaw injuries, according to the arrest report at the time.

Davis is scheduled to fight Hector Luis Garcia in Washington, DC on January 7. It’s unclear if his arrest on Tuesday will affect the game.
