Gervonta Davis Facing First Degree Aggravated Assault Charge

According to the Baltimore Fish Bowl, former world champion Gervonta Davis (19-0, 18 KOs) is facing a complaint of first-degree aggravated assault.

The paper cites Maryland court records, stating that an incident took place on August 1, but no details were available as to what took place or who was assaulted.

Davis, 22, made an appearance on the assault complaint on September 19 on a warrant, and he was released after posting a $100,000 unsecured bond - according to court records. He is scheduled to appear back in court on October 19.

It seems that court records also show two active cases for traffic stops, one in Baltimore County in April and another in Howard County in August.

According to Baltimore Press Box, Davis was cited with going 80 mph in a 55 mph zone in Baltimore County. In the Howard County stop, he was cited for following too close and driving on a suspended license.

Davis has had a rocky year. In January, he captured the International Boxing Federation lightweight title by knocking out Jose Pedraza in the seventh round. Then in May, Davis successfully defended his title with a third-round knockout of Liam Walsh in London.

He saw action back last month as part of the huge Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor undercard at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. He failed to make weight for the fight, losing his IBF title on the scale. He secured a stoppage victory over Francisco Fonseca, but the ending was controversial because Fronseca got hit unintentionally to the back of the head. Davis was likely on his way to a stoppage win.

Maybe Gervonta didn't do it but the fact he got accused speaks to something very off putting in his character. When you get falsely accused of these things it is because you evoked hatred in the other person. You evoke…
