American lightweight Jerwonta Davis (29-0, 27 KOs) was sentenced to 90 days of house arrest, three years probation, and 200 hours of community service, BoxingScene reported. Several years ago, the boxer had an accident in Baltimore.

Davis will serve his sentence at the Baltimore home of Calvin Ford, his father, and trainer. He will do community service in Baltimore, which is Jervonta's hometown.


A Baltimore County judge rebuked Davis during the hearing for not even apologizing to the driver he hit.

"Three words: 'I'm sorry.' But he didn't find the strength to do it... He showed absolutely no remorse," the judge said.


Davis, 28, pleaded guilty Feb. 16 to four charges related to the accident. In November 2020, the athlete ran a red light in his Lamborghini Uris and crashed into a Toyota that was traveling through an intersection. Four passengers were injured in the collision.

Davis pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident, failing to report property damage to the owner, driving without a license, and failing to stop at a red light.

Earlier, Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko said that he would like to fight Gervonta if he can't get a rematch with world lightweight absolute champion Teofimo Lopez.

As reported by OBOZREVATEL, Davis defeated compatriot Ryan Garcia (23-1, 19 KOs) on April 23. The fight at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas ended early.
