In February this year, Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis pleaded guilty to four counts for a hit-and-run car crash in Baltimore, Maryland, in November 2020. Hence, he was ordered to remain under house arrest in his trainer, Calvin Ford’s home for 90 days. 

However, the 29-0 Baltimore native decided to move to a hotel and then to another home without permission, per a report from Mike Coppinger. The unauthorized action from ‘Tank’ resulted in a court order to serve the rest of his sentence in Baltimore jail. Recently, after being released from this 44-day prison sentence, Davis turned to Instagram. He shared a heartfelt message with his fans while flaunting his prized possessions.

In his Instagram post today, the boxing star wrote, “If you spend your time chasing butterflies, they’ll fly away. But if you spend your time making a beautiful garden, the butterflies will come to you. When you focus on improving yourself, everything you want will come to you. We attract based on who we are, not what we want. Don’t chase, attract.” Besides sharing these beautiful words, Davis also included some images.
