Gervonta 'Tank' Davis has been released from prison after serving his time

28-year-old WBA lightweight champion Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis (29-0, 27 KOs) was released earlier today as first reported by Elie Seckbach on his Instagram account. The picture posted shows Davis with his hair grown out with a goatee. Davis was initially scheduled to serve the 90-day sentence on house arrest due to a plea deal stemming from the November 2020 hit-and-run charge, but he violated the terms of the deal shortly after. There seemed to be a miscommunication between Davis and his lawyer which resulted in the judge being made aware of the violation and sending ‘Tank” to serve the rest of his time in jail.

Davis isn’t completely done with his obligations from the court, as he still has to serve 200 hours of community service and three years of probation. Davis knows that future violations will trigger him to serve in jail for the rest of the time. Regarding boxing, the timing couldn’t be any better as there has been plenty of talk of a rematch with Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz, who is fighting on the undercard of Errol Spence Jr. vs. Terence Crawford. A win by Cruz on that night, and he will likely get the ‘Tank’ rematch towards the end of the year, if not the beginning of next year. These next few months will be interesting as we await what is next for one of boxing’s biggest stars.
