“According to a police report, Boxer Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis was the driver in a hit-and-run crash in Baltimore in November that left multiple people injured,” says Baltimore CBS affiliate WJZ 13. The collision occurred just before 2 a.m. at the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. and Washington boulevards. On November 5th, Davis crossed a red light while he was behind the wheel of a 2020 Lamborghini Urus and hit a 2004 Toyota Solara, according to the article. WJZ 13 adds that “the three individuals inside the Lamborghini fled the scene, according to the report.” It lists four individuals, one of whom sustained a possible serious injury, as being in a Toyota.
It is yet to be determined whether or not Davis will be fined for this case. “The hit-and-run accident investigation is still ongoing,” the Guardian cites Baltimore police officer Lindsey Eldridge as saying. “The department has transferred the results to the state attorney’s office, and we are working closely to collect and determine any charges that may be pending as a result of this incident.” Over the past few years, Davis has been arrested numerous times. He is currently seen as one of the rising fighters of boxing, holding titles at lightweight and lightweight junior.
Davis, who made his pro debut exactly eight years ago today, has earned a record of 24-0. An incredibly powerful puncher, he has won all but one of his fights by knockout. Davis’ last fight resulted in a stunning sixth round knockout of the popular and decorated Leo Santa Cruz. Floyd Mayweather himself has taken to help guide the young fighter’s career. “He’s one of the biggest stars in the sport,” Mayweather has said of Davis. “I’ve laid down the blueprint and I’m going to keep helping him grow.”
Apparently, news of the hit and run that landed a few days ago had no impact on the 26-year-old Davis, at least not for the time being. This past weekend, after Valdez claimed a brutal and shocking victory over Miguel Berchelt for Berchelt’s WBC featherweight belt, Davis tweeted about bringing Oscar Valdez to figurative school. Davis also bragged about being the “highest paid” on social media Sunday. With explosive results and a very impressive record, Davis looks as if he might be on his way to being one of the biggest stars of boxing, given his skyrocketing career is not hindered by legal problems.
