Video surfaced Saturday on social media of boxer Gervonta Davis, a Baltimore native, in a physical altercation with a woman at a celebrity basketball game in Miami.
In the 14-second video, Davis, 25, is seen with his hand close to the woman’s neck, forcibly removing her from her seat before leaving the court with her and two other men.
As of Sunday afternoon, no police report or protective order was filed against Davis regarding the incident caught on video, officials said.
In February 2019, a Fairfax County, Virginia, magistrate issued Davis an arrest warrant for a misdemeanor assault charge in connection to an alleged altercation on Feb. 17 at a Virginia mall. Davis was scheduled to appear in court in May 2019, but he reached a settlement and the charges were dropped.
Davis’ advisor, Lorin Chvotkin, said he would have no comment at this time.
Davis posted on Instagram, “I never once hit her. yea I was aggressive and told her come on … that’s the mother of my child I would never hurt her…”
Davis, who now lives and trains in the Atlanta area, won the World Boxing Association lightweight title with a 12th-round knockout of Yuriorkis Gamboa on Dec. 29 in Atlanta.
Davis has a 23-0 career record with 22 knockouts.
