Boxer Gervonta Davis’ future is in jeopardy, as he has been recently arrested for charges of domestic violence against his daughter’s mother Vanessa Posso. Davis has an upcoming boxing match, but this incident can result in the cancellation of the highly anticipated fight against Hector Luis Garcia.
According to a report, Davis was jailed overnight after he allegedly hit Posso. He has his upcoming fight on 7th January and was released after a bail. Davis recently came out and attempted to prove his innocence through a series of posts.
In his Instagram story, Davis implied that he hit Posso as she had smeared poop on his toothbrush. The 28-year-old boxer said stated that Posso took the poop from their daughter’s diapers. He also said that he “can’t do this” – referring to him hitting Posso because he was “locked up”. Davis wrote:
“This girl put sh*t on my toothbrush…and everything this hard sh*t from my daughter pamper…the one y’all saw I hit! Can’t ay I did this I was fu**king locked up…I didn’t want to do this but I wanna clear my name!”

According to Davis, he wanted to clear the allegations and said: “I didn’t want to do this, but I wanna clear my name.” Davis was arrested previously over domestic violence against Posso. The 28-year-old is also due for trial on 16th February for the charges in an alleged hit-and-run case in 2020.
Vanessa Posso’s comments on her fight with Gervonta Davis
Gervonta Davis is in a lot of trouble after this incident. His “baby mama” Vanessa Posso has not stated anything after the incident. However, Davis stated that he is being framed and attempted to prove this through the above-mentioned post.
According to ESPN, Posso called the police twice after Davis allegedly attacked her. She told the dispatcher that she had, “a baby in the car, and [Davis] attacked me”, followed by “He’s going to kill me.”
Posso also pressed the emergency alarm on her car which redirected her to the Mercedes-Benz emergency center. She was heard saying that Davis was “speeding at her.”
Apparently, Davis was not under the influence of drugs when this happened. It was proved at the time of his arrest. But this is not the first time that the boxer got in legal trouble as he was previously arrested for hitting Posso and another alleged hit-and-run case.
‘Tank’ is 27-0, and is coming off a spectacular knockout win over Rolando Romero. Davis has some big fights next year. He is set to face Hector Luis Garcia and then there are rumors of a bout against Ryan Garcia. But first, Davis will need to win his upcoming bout on 7th Jan and then there’s a trial for his hit-and-run on 16th Feb.
