The boxing champion, clearly embarrassed by the huge amount of public disapproval, has deleted every post on his Instagram page, leaving his 2.1 million followers in nothing but a state of shock.


In the since-deleted Instagram post, shocker!?, Davis acknowledged that he was “aggressive” with the woman but denied ever striking her.

“I never once hit her,” Davis wrote. “Yea I was aggressive and told her come on … That’s the mother of my child. I would never hurt her.”

What is Gervonta Davis’ fight record?

He is a 2 weight world champion. He has held that WBA lightweight title since 2019 and before that, he held the IBF super featherweight title in 2017. From 2018 to 2019, he held the WBA super featherweight title. Gervonta Davis’ pro boxing record is 23-0 with 22 of his wins coming via knockout or TKO.

His most recent win came against Yuriorkis Gamboa where he won the vacant WBA (Regular) lightweight title

Often he is referred to as Floyd Mayweather JR. prodigy and Mayweather himself referred to him as “future of boxing.”

He said, “I had a lot of experience [from the amateur ranks], but I learned how to keep my composure. Floyd told me to stay calm, and I studied Floyd Mayweather [videos] when he was ‘Pretty Boy.’ My uppercut was my best shot, and it was landing all night. It felt really good to fight the way I did. I could take it and dish it out.”

Although Mayweather’s words in this situation aren’t really helpful, especially since he too is under investigation after allegedly assaulting a fan who asked for a photo this past Super Bowl weekend outside his Miami Beach hotel, TMZ reported.
