Gervonta Davis had served home detention in $3.4M condo & Four Seasons hotel
By Craig Daly: Gervonta Davis had been spending his 90-day home detention sentence at a Four Seasons hotel and his newly purchased $3.4 million penthouse apartment in Baltimore instead of at the one-bedroom house of his trainer Calvin Ford, which is what the Baltimore Circuit Judge Althea M. Handy wanted.
With Gervonta not following the judge’s wish for his 90-day house arrest, he has now been taken into custody and will spend the remaining time in jail.
There’s no word on how the judge discovered that Gervonta Davis hadn’t stayed at his trainer Calvin Ford’s home. Moreover, did the 28-year-old Baltimore, Maryland native Davis not understand that he was expected to remain at Ford’s home for the entire 90-day period? This information should have been spelled out to Tank by the judge at the sentencing last month.
The famous lightweight champion Tank Davis was sentenced to 90 days of house arrest last month for his 2020 hit & run crash, which left four people injured.
Davis, a former Mayweather fighter, has rapidly become one of the most popular fighters in boxing but without taking any real risky fights that had the potential of him losing.
Fans have wanted Tank to take on more formidable opposition like Shakur Stevenson, Vasyl Lomachenko, Regis Prograis, and Devin Haneey, but it hasn’t happened.
Still, Davis’ popularity has gone through the roof, and he recently made a ton of money defeating Ryan Garcia last April, an unproven fighter with a weak resume but a massive Instagram following of over 10 million followers. If those two were to fight again, it would still bring in a lot of PPV buys due to their large following on social media.
“Baltimore Circuit Judge Althea M. Handy said she gave permission for Davis, 28, who had been living in Parkland, Florida, to do the house arrest at the home of his trainer, Calvin Ford, in Baltimore. She said she was never asked to change that location. She did not want Davis to be sitting by the pool or hanging out at the spa,” said Dylan Segelbaum & Justin Fenton to the Baltimore Banner.
When Tank Davis eventually gets out of jail around July, fans will be anxious to see who he fights next this year, if anyone. There’s a massive demand for Tank to fight Devin Haney or Shakur Stevenson. Davis’ trainer Ford wants him to fight Haney or Isaac Cruz.
It won’t be surprising if Tank Davis chooses to sit out for the remainder of 2023 and enjoy the millions he made for his fight with Ryan.
