Davis was previously arrested and charged in a Miami-Dade County court with two misdemeanor counts of Simple Battery Domestic Violence in February 2020 during Super Bowl week in Miami. The court case lingered for nearly three years before the prosecution abandoned the charges on December 13 according to Dade County Clerk of the Courts records.
The 28-year-old southpaw is still due to stand trial on February 16 in his Baltimore hometown, where he faces multiple misdemeanor charges from his alleged involvement in a November 2020 hit-and-run incident. His legal team attempted to present a plea agreement that was reached with the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s office but it was rejected by a Baltimore City Circuit court judge on September 22.
Davis’s upcoming fight with Dominican Republic’s Garcia—a WBA junior lightweight titlist moving up in weight—was intended to help promote an agreed upon superfight with Victorville, California’s Ryan Garcia (23-0, 19KOs; no relation to Hector) later next spring.
