Gervonta Davis is undefeated with a professional record of 24-0. Many believe that Davis is the future face of boxing. When it comes to popularity, he triumphs in his generation. However, with popularity comes controversies.
Davis landed in hot waters when he made an Instagram story claiming, “I can’t stop cheating on my girlfriend.” He deleted the Instagram story shortly after, but its snaps have been circulating online.
A video was circulated in which it shows Davis getting physical with a woman who was accompanying him at an event. It turns out that the woman was the mother of Davis' child, and it was just a heated argument.
According to baltimoresun.com, Davis was once indicted on 14 counts related to a hit-and-run crash in downtown Baltimore.
There was a controversy regarding Davis' gloves when he knocked out Leo Santa Cruz. It was because he changed his gloves for the fight. However, it turns out it was nothing but a conspiracy theory as Cruz already signed off for both the gloves.
Once Davis accused his team on Twitter, claiming that his team thinks he broke his hand and will hold him back. Furthermore, he claimed they were planning on giving away his potential return date too. The tweet has been deleted.
