WBA champion Jervonta Davis has been placed in custody and will spend the remainder of his sentence in a Baltimore jail for violation of house arrest after being sentenced for a hit-and-run car accident.
Recall that in November 2020, Gerwonta's vehicle crashed into another vehicle with four people in it, including a pregnant woman. It was later proven that the boxer violated traffic laws.
Davis pleaded guilty to the charges, and was sentenced to three months of house arrest and three years of probation, as well as 200 hours of community service.
According to The Baltimore Banner, the boxer will spend the remainder of his 90-day sentence in prison for violating his sentence. Davis' attorneys confirm this information.
Recall that in April, Davis defeated Ryan Garcia by a seventh-round knockout to defend his WBA lightweight belt.
Davis, 28, had previously been in the ring against Hector Garcia this past January. That fight ended in the favor of Gervonta by TKO in the ninth round. He has 29 wins (27 by knockout) and no losses.
