Is Gervonta Davis the new Broner
There are fresh concerns among hardcore and basement twitter boxing fans that Gervonta Davis is going in the way of Adrien 'the problem' Broner. The former world champion (19-0, 18 KOs) is facing a complaint of first-degree aggravated assault.
As reported by boxingscene, Maryland court records, state that an incident took place on August 1, but no details were available as to what took place or who was assaulted.
Davis, 22, made an appearance on the assault complaint on September 19 on a warrant, and he was released after posting a $100,000 unsecured bond - according to court records. He is scheduled to appear back in court on October 19.
Adrian Broner, best known as a part time rapper and one time Mayweather heir/ sext tape extraordinaire , has had a largely disappointing career, given the weight of expection placed on him and his talents. Asked about the comparisons Mr. Davis responded contemptuously “I’m not Adrian”. When pushed on whether he was wasting his talents as Broner had done, he simply replied “I’d be honoured to be 4 division champion, that’s a Win. Going on tour with Soulja Boy, that’s a Win. Fucking Pauli malignaggi’s ex, that’s a Win.”
It is unclear as to when or if he will get his career back on track.
