Gervonta Davis, the American knockout machine has made several headlines for his in-ring achievements and outer-ring controversies. However, that could have possibly been a blessing in disguising for the champion. 26-year-old Davis is now a superstar boxer, grabbing enough attention even from the outer-ring universe and non-boxing fans. That said, not every attention he received is fruitful.

Gervonta Davis – ‘Tank’ and ‘Love’

According to the reports of gossipgist.com, Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis is currently in a relationship with a woman named Ari Fletcher. The pair is expected to be parents soon. Meanwhile, Davis also has a daughter named Gervanni Davis, from his previous relationship with Dretta Starr.

The champion boxer’s ex-girlfriend charged him with first-degree physical assault in March 2020. TMZ reported the news but didn’t reveal the name of the victim. A video footage surfaced on social media that clearly showed Davis getting violent with his ex-partner.

The incident happened in a charity basketball game and Davis was right away arrested for the misconduct. ‘Tank’ assaulted the woman and appeared to grab her by the neck. Video clips also showed him assaulting another man.

However, the boxer denied such things and said, “I never once hit her. Yeah I was aggressive and told her come on. That’s the mother of my child. I would never hurt her.” (H/T-Bleacher Report)
