Gervonta Davis will not be tried for domestic violence.
Prosecutors on Monday dropped one count of battery after the alleged victim, the mother of the fighter’s child, declined to press charges, Sports TMZ reports.
According to prosecutors, Davis and the woman, Vanessa Posso, agreed that she needed to complete anger management and parenting classes. He did, and the case was dismissed.
Posso called 911 after he accused a lightweight fighter of punching her in the face during a December 27 argument in Broward County, Florida. He he has been arrestedimprisoned and then released.
However, three days later, she noted on Instagram that Davis “didn’t hurt me or our daughter.”
She or someone else wrote on her Instagram account (@itsrgnessa): “The last few days have been painful and extremely exhausting for all parties involved. I pride myself on being extremely private; this situation was the last thing I wanted to make public.
“The state of our relationship was fragile, and me and Gervonta were guilty of arguing. While the excitement was building, I made an unnecessary call to law enforcement in an intense moment when I was insane. Gervonta has not harmed me or our daughter.
“Today we sought the help necessary to move forward in our lives. I am confident that we will be successful in our co-parenting dynamic with the advice you give us.”
Davis he rejected the allegationscalling them “bulls…”.
“I have never laid hands on my baby’s mother or my fucking daughter, ARE YOU MAD!! I AM NOT A MONSTER,” he wrote on Instagram.
He also seemed to say in a lengthy post that the incident was an attempt by his accuser to extort money from him.
Davis allegedly hit Posso on the right side of her face with what was described in the police report as a “closed palm”, which caused her upper lip to graze.
The police report indicated that he “actually and intentionally touched and struck (a woman) against her will (and) intentionally caused her bodily harm.”
The audio of the alleged victim’s 911 phone call was obtained from multiple outlets. She reportedly told the operator, “I need help, please! I’m trying to go home. I have a child in the car and he attacked me in front of him. And now he’s ruining my tires!” Then she paused and said, “Please help me! He will kill me!
The call was cut, but she called back, adding: “I have to go home, I’m in danger now!”
Police received one more call from a woman, apparently Posso, who claimed Davis had also spat on her.
The incident happened on December 27 at around 1:25 p.m. He was arrested that day at 2:50 p.m.
Davis has fought twice since the incident, knocking out Hector Luis Garcia and Ryan Garcia.
The lightweight was sentenced earlier this month to 90 days of house arrest and 200 hours of community service for a 2020 hit-and-run.
