Gervonta Davis is where he belongs … behind bars.
According to TMZ the featherweight fighter was arrested for domestic violence for roughing up his ex-girlfriend at a celebrity basketball game in Florida. Cops confirmed that Gervonta surrendered to the Coral Gables PD on Tuesday for the Feb. 1 incident.
Over the weekend a disturbing video hit the internet showing Gervonta angrily grabbing his baby mama Andretta Smothers by her neck and collar at a basketball game. According to witnesses the heated altercation continued backstage.

Cops say the 25-year-old is facing one count of “simple battery domestic violence.”After the video went viral cops began looking into the incident. They were also notified by the victim. For his part, Davis put out a statement over the weekend denying striking Smothers.
“I never once hit her … yeah I was aggressive and told her come on,” Davis said. “That’s the mother of my child. I would never hurt her.”
He also posted this video (deep sigh).
Davis is a rising superstar in the boxing world. He’s Floyd Mayweather’s protege and has racked up an impressive 23-0 record as a pro with victories over guys like Yuriorkis Gamboa and José Pedraza. Davis has had a bunch of legal issues over the years. He was arrested for assault back in 2017 after allegedly punching a friend. The charge was later dropped.
Smothers sued Davis, 24, for “domestic family violence” back in August 2016.
According to court papers obtained by BOSSIP she was so afraid that she asked a judge to issue a temporary restraining order. However, the following month, Smothers voluntarily agreed for the case to be dismissed one day before she was supposed to have the hearing on the restraining order. The entire case was eventually sealed.
