Boxing star Gervonta Davis was released from a Baltimore jail on Friday after spending 44 days at a detention center.

The news was confirmed by a Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services. Davis was in the detention centre after a judge ruled on June 1 that he violated the terms of his house arrest.

The 28-year-old was previously sentenced to 90 days of home detention at the home of his trainer, Calvin Ford, after pleading guilty to four counts related to a November 2020 crash that injured four people.

Davis then moved to a luxury hotel and then a new home without the permission of the Maryland state attorney’s office.

However, on June 1, a judge ruled that Davis had violated the conditions of his sentencing, and as a result, he was ordered to serve the remainder of his sentence in jail.

A state attorney’s office spokesperson later said that Davis‘ then-attorney had claimed that the address his client had provided at sentencing for his home detention was too small for him and his security detail.

Along with home detention, Davis was also sentenced to three years’ probation and 200 hours of community service. The ruling came less than two weeks after the biggest fight of the 28-year-old’s career, a seventh-round TKO win over Ryan Garcia.
