Boxing superstar Gervonta Davis has been jailed after breaching the terms of his sentence for a hit-and-run smash.
Following victory in his grudge match against lightweight rival Ryan Garcia in April, Davis’ career is now on hold. Shortly after that fight, he was sentenced over a hit-and-run which left four people injured in November 2020.
It was said Davis ran a red light in his Lamborghini Urus SUV and struck another vehicle containing four people, including a pregnant woman, who was left with a knee injury.

After pleading guilty to four traffic offences including leaving the scene of an accident involving bodily injury, he was sentenced to 90 days of home detention, three years' probation and 200 hours of community service.
Injured mum Jyair Smith said: "I begged Mr Gervonta Davis, I looked him in his eyes. I said, 'I have to get home to my daughter, I'm pregnant.' He never once came over to help me."

Having avoided prison, Davis reportedly planned to spend his sentence at his $3.4million (£2.73million) penthouse in Baltimore and a swish Four Seasons Hotel. It is unclear which Four Seasons site Davis he was due to use, but the chain’s five-star Baltimore hotel features a rooftop swimming pool with a river view.
The hotel also includes four restaurants, gym facilities and marble bathrooms with “deep soaking tubs”. The hotel has a rating of 9.7 on booking.com.
Amid that luxurious-sounding arrangement, it has emerged Davis breached the terms of his sentence after just 30 days. It is unclear how he violated his detention.
As a result, he has been ordered by a US court to spend the next two months behind bars. With a release date of early August, he won’t return to the ring until late this year at the earliest.
Following his victory over Garcia, Davis had been setting his sights on the winner of Devin Haney versus Vasyl Lomachenko, who clashed for the former’s WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO lightweight titles in May, with Haney winning a unanimous decision.
