Gervonta Davis is finally free of the constant surveillance by the state.

Following his victory over Leo Santa Cruz on October 31, 2020, the boxer was involved in an incident on Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard in the early morning hours.

Davis, who was driving, was involved in a crash and subsequently charged with 14 counts, including leaving the scene of an accident and bodily injury. He left the scene with the assistance of a friend. Despite the incident, Davis was cleared to fight Garcia, avoiding jail time but facing a 90-day home confinement. In an Instagram story, Davis has shared an update on it.

The story that Michael Benson shared on X had a picture of Davis’s feet. He wore white socks paired with black shoes. But this is not what he wanted to show his fans. What he was flaunting was actually the absence of the ankle monitor. Last year, in July, the boxer had to keep appearing in courtrooms to address his alleged role in the hit-and-run incident from November 2020.

In March 2021, he faced charges for 14 traffic violations and pleaded guilty to four counts in February of the following year. As a result, he was sentenced to 90 days of home detention, three years of probation, and 200 hours of community service. Now, with his legal troubles becoming a thing of the past, Davis can now fully concentrate on boxing.

News regarding Gervonta Davis’s upcoming fight is expected to surface in the coming months. Davis solidified his status as one of boxing’s prominent figures by defeating previously unbeaten Ryan Garcia in April last year. With his rivalry with Garcia now in the past, the Baltimore native is poised for another significant bout this year. Potential opponents such as Vasiliy Lomachenko, George Kambosos Jr., and William Zepeda are being considered.

Lomachenko, an Olympic gold medalist, recently had a close fight with Devin Haney, making him an enticing opponent despite his prior commitment. Kambosos, although perceived as a step-down, remains a formidable figure in the division. Meanwhile, Zepeda, an undefeated rising star, presents an intriguing challenge for Davis if he’s willing to embrace the risk involved.
