According to TMZ Sports, a woman claims WBA super featherweight champion Gervonta Davis punched her in the head multiple times during an incident at a Dallas strip club ... and now intends to sue Davis for $2 million.
The accuser's attorney told TMZ, the woman was struck in the left side of her head with a closed fist at King of Diamonds in Dallas on April 30. The woman was an employee at the club, according to her attorney.
As a result, the woman says she was hospitalized with a "traumatic head injury" and has had to seek counseling to deal with the psychological injury associated with the attack.
The woman hired Witherspoon Law Group and intends to sue Gervonta for $2 million "as compensation for her serious physical injury and emotional trauma."
TMZ was told the woman did not file a police report -- but decided to come forward with the allegations after being inspired by the #MeToo movement.
It's not the first time Davis has been accused of getting violent -- he was arrested on Sept. 14 in Washington D.C. after cops say he was fighting in the street - a dispute that was alleged to have broken out over a large bar bill.
Davis (20-0, 19 KOs) has been out of the ring since April, when he blew away Jesus Cuellar.
He was seen at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn last month, where he sat ringside for Shawn Porter's win over Danny Garcia. Davis was obviously not in training as he was well over his fighting weight.
Last year in Baltimore, Davis was in hot water over punching a man to the side of the head with a gloved fist at the Upton Boxing Center. The man Anthony Wheeler, claimed a fight broke out between Davis and his brother. Wheeler has alleged that after the boxer’s bodyguard broke up the altercation, Davis came around and “sucker punched me very violently.”
Wheeler said he was knocked out by the punch and afterwards he was diagnosed with a concussion at St. Agnes Hospital. He pressed charges with the District Court Commissioner and Davis was arrested. The charges were eventually dropped after Wheeler refused to further pursue the matter.
