Bad news indeed for Gervonta Davis. Reports from Baltimore say “Tank” was yesterday indicted on 14 counts for his involvement in the reported hit and run accident that took place back on November 5. If Davis – one of the most exciting young fighters on the scene today – is hit with the full penalty, he could face 7 years in jail, and also have to pay a stiff fine. Needless to say, Davis’ career would be over if this happened.
Back when news of the hit and run first broke, reports said witnesses along with surveillance footage identified Davis as the driver of the Lamborghini Urus SUV that ran through a red light and slammed into a Toyota Solara at around 2.AM on November 5 of 2020. The Toyota was apparently “destroyed,” while one of the four passengers in the written-off car suffered “suspected serious injury,” while two of the four passengers were suspected to have suffered “minor injuries.”
Davis and his two passengers are reported to have fled the scene on foot.
The hit-and-run took place less than a week after Davis’ most recent fight, when he scored what was for many The 2020 KO Of The Year over Leo Santa Cruz. Davis, unbeaten as a pro at 24-0 with 23 KO’s and already a two-weight world champion, was recently reported to have hurt his had in sparring and there is no date yet as far as his next scheduled fight. Unfortunately, Davis – who has fallen foul of the law before – is not the first big name fighter to have been involved in some kind of car accident if some kind.
In fact, over the years we have seen far too many gifted and talented fighters have their careers ruined due to them falling foul of the law. Davis’s fate now rests firmly in the hands of the authorities.
