Boxer Gervonta Davis Filmed Gripping The Mother Of His Child By The Neck

Boxer Gervonta Davis has responded after appearing to grip the mother of his child by the neck on video.

23-0 Davis, who is promoted by Floyd Mayweather's promotion, was at a charity basketball game in Miami when the altercation took place.

In a clip that has circulated on social media, Davis can be seen aggressively grabbing Andretta Smothers by the neck, pulling her off her seat by her collar before dragging her away as his entourage follow him out of the venue.

The Baltimore fighter's actions have been widely condemned and he has since responded with a statement.

Taking to Instagram, he wrote: "I never once hit her. 'Yea [sic] I was aggressive and told her come on. "That's the mother of my child I would never hurt her other than that happy New Years. January was trash."

Together Davis and Smothers have a daughter named Gervanni, who will turn two in April.

The 25-year old is the current WBA 'regular' lightweight champion and previously held a world title in the super featherweight division.

In 2017 Davis was charged with assault for allegedly punching a childhood friend but the charges were later dropped.

A year later he was arrested for his role in a street fight in Washington DC, while another assault case in Virginia was halted last year when the two-weight world champion reached a settlement.
