Boxer Gervonta Davis was arrested on Tuesday morning on an alleged domestic violence battery charge just two weeks before he is scheduled to face Hector Luis Garcia on January 7th on Showtime pay-per-view.

The incident occurred around 1:25 in the afternoon at a home in Parkland, Florida according to a police report.

In a 911 call, first obtained by TMZ Sports, the woman can be heard screaming for help.

“I need help, please!” she said in the call. “I’m trying to go home. I have my baby in the car, and he attacked me in front of the kid. And, now he’s messing up my tires!”

Moments later she screams, “Please, help me! He’s going to kill me!”

The call disconnects but she calls back again, saying, “I need to go home, I’m in danger right now!”

A bystander also called 911 asking for help for the woman and claiming Davis spit at her.

Davis allegedly struck the unidentified woman involved in the domestic incident with a closed-hand type slap, according to police. The woman allegedly suffered a small abrasion to the inside of her lip. The bail was originally set at $1,000. 

Davis was reportedly held overnight and released on Wednesday.

Neither Showtime nor the Premier Boxing Champions have commented publicly on the arrest and whether the arrest will affect the fight. 

This is not the only legal issue that Davis is facing.  Davis was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run incident in November of 2020.  Davis is facing 14 charges and a civil suit after being accused of leaving the scene. One of the people who Davis allegedly hit was a pregnant woman. If convicted, Davis could serve time in jail. He is scheduled to be in court in February for that case.

Davis had assault charges dropped in 2017 after being accused of punching a friend. He was also arrested in 2018 for allegations of disorderly conduct following a fight in Washington D.C. Davis pled guilty to a battery domestic violence charge in 2020 which involved the mother of his daughter and allegedly occurred at a charity basketball game. He was caught on tape at the event grabbing the woman by the neck and removing her from her chair.

As of now, Davis is still scheduled to face Luis Garcia on January 7th in Washington D.C. Garcia is 16-0 with 10 knockouts while Davis is 27-0 with 25 knockouts.
