Gervonta Davis appears to take swing at mother of his child after grabbing her throat in shocking new footage of attack – The Sun

SHOCKING new footage has emerged of Gervonta Davis appearing to hit the mother of his child – despite the boxer stating he would never physically harm her.

The 25-year-old was caught by cameras grabbing the throat of ex-girlfriend Andretta Smothers last month following a heated argument, with the American subsequently handing himself into police.

Davis – who boasts a record of 23-0 in the professional ranks with 22 knockouts – was charged with one count of simple battery domestic violence.

He then took to Instagram to claim that he was aggressive with Smothers, but declared that he would never hit her.

The southpaw said: "I never once hit her.. yeah I was aggressive and told her come on.

"That's the mother of my child, I would never hurt her."

But in footage shared by TMZ, Davis could be seen appearing to take a swing at his former flame at a celebrity basketball event that occurred in Florida on February 1.

HEAVY HANDED

They state that police confirmed that Smothers suffered injuries to her lip and left jaw.

In the video, the two-weight world champion can be clearly seen walking towards Smothers, before dragging her away from the court and towards the locker room.

Davis – who stopped Cuban star Yuriorkia Gamboa in his last fight in December – then appears to cock back his left hand and hit Smothers, where he is then pulled away by surrounding men.

Smothers is then seen charging back at Davis, before the boxer then became involved in an altercation immediately after.

It seemed as though Davis confronted a man who had been filming the incident, with the duo squaring off as they faced each other.




But Davis was restrained from confronting the man.

Davis has a history of violence and was previously arrested for a reported street fight in 2018.

Last year he was forced to deny he had a police bust-up following an altercation with a man at a cash point.
