Early life and Amateur Career

Davis has been training at Upton Boxing Center since he was five years old. Davis is trained by Calvin Ford who was the inspiration for the character Dennis “Cutty” Wise on the hit HBO television series, The Wire. Davis had a very successful amateur career, winning many national championships.

He won the 2012 National Golden Gloves Championship, three straight National Silver Gloves Championships from 2006–2008, two National Junior Olympics gold medals, two National Police Athletic League Championships, and two Ringside World Championships, among others. Davis finished his illustrious amateur career with an impressive record of 206–15.

Davis originally hails from the Sandtown-Winchester community in West Baltimore, which is one of the most crime-ridden areas of the city. He attended Digital Harbor High School, a local magnet school, but dropped out to focus on his career. He later earned his secondary degree through a GED program.

Charges and Arrested

Police said, Davis, surrendered to Coral Gables police on Tuesday after video surfaced on Twitter Saturday showing the undefeated southpaw getting physical with an ex-girlfriend at a celebrity basketball game at the University of Miami.

Police said in a statement, “As a result of an ongoing investigation after being notified through social media and the victim, on February 1, 2020, the above-pictured subject was observed battering his former girlfriend [and the mother of his child].

Footage of the altercation shows Davis — who has been charged with simple battery domestic violence — aggressively approaching the victim as she sat before yanking her to her feet by her throat. He then forcibly led the woman out of the arena, video shows.

The incident left the woman, who has not been identified, with injuries to her lip and jaw, according to an arrest report obtained by the Miami Herald.

Charges were filed after investigators reviewed the 14-second video and met with both the victim and Davis, a police spokeswoman told the newspaper.

In a since-deleted Instagram post, Davis acknowledged that he was “aggressive” with the woman but denied striking her.

“I never once hit her,” Davis wrote. “Yea I was aggressive and told her come on … That’s the mother of my child. I would never hurt her.”

Davis, who has more than 2.1 million Instagram followers, has since deleted all posts from his account.

A spokesman for Premier Boxing Champions, which manages Davis, declined to comment on his arrest, ESPN reports.

“It looks like it’s a legal matter,” spokesman Tim Smith said. “We don’t comment on legal matters.”
