When Gervonta Davis’ next fight was announced, it was also revealed that he is facing more legal trouble.
The boxer is being sued for allegedly causing «multiple bodily injuries» after punching a parking attendant in a New York City garage.
Arturo Jiménez claims that the boxer hit him in the chest while he was waiting for his car in the garage on March 8, 2022.

Davis was staying at the Continental Hotel in Times Square, across the street from the Edison Park Fast Garage on West 44th Street. Jimenez, who reported the incident to police the next day, says he didn’t know Davis had borrowed his car from another employee. The fighter approached Jimenez and said, «Stop playing with me,» before allegedly punching him.
Jimenez was then led into the office while Davis allegedly continued to «scream and swear», demanding his keys, though he allegedly initially refused to pay.
It was announced Friday that Davis will fight Ryan Garcia on April 22 in Las Vegas.
Davis has been in trouble recently. He pleaded guilty to a Maryland hit-and-run charge and will be sentenced on May 5. That incident left four people injured and he faces seven years in prison among his 14 violations.
He was also arrested on domestic violence charges in December, but the charges were dropped.
He was also accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend three years ago.
The 28-year-old is 26-0 in his professional career. Garcia is 23-0.
