Gervonta Davis’ next fight being ‘planned’ to take place in the UK


Gervonta Davis next fight is reportedly being planned to take place in the UK.

The 29-year-old American boxing star won a breakout fight last year as he knocked out Ryan Garcia in their Las Vegas PPV blockbuster.

However, Davis has not returned to the ring since that victory in April.

This is because he spent 44 days in prison after violating the terms of a sentence that initially saw him set to avoid being jailed.

At the start of May, Davis was sentenced over his November 2020 hit-and-run car crash which injured four people.

Because he accepted a plea deal and pled guilty to four traffic offences, he avoided a custodial sentence.

Tank was instead ordered to fulfil 90 days of home detention, with three years’ probation, plus 200 hours of community service.

However, not even a month later, Davis was sent to prison after all.

He was adjudged to have violated the terms of his home detention order and was ordered to serve the rest of his 90-day sentence in jail as a result.

It was revealed that he violated the terms by trying to serve the home detention order at the Four Seasons Hotel and a $3.4million penthouse, rather than trainer Calvin Ford’s one-bedroom home as the judge agreed.

Upon being released, Davis has spoken out on social media several times to express his anger about the restrictions he’s still facing and how they have prevented him from returning to training at times.

However, he’s now back in the gym and news emerged of plans for his next fight.

According to Ring Magazine, Tank’s return is being eyed for this summer in the UK.

At this point, no further details are known.

He previously boxed in London in 2017 when he knocked out Liam Walsh in his first world title defence as a 21-year-old.

Now that he’s developed into a major star, British boxing fans would no doubt welcome his return to the country.
