Gervonta's Davis fight against Luis Garcia set to go through

Gervonta Davis confirmed on social media that his fight with Hector Luis Garcia will take place. The boxing champion was arrested earlier this week on suspicion of domestic violence.

Davis was released on Wednesday after the woman who called 911 claimed he did not harm her or their daughter.

"These past few days have been hurtful and extremely exhausting for all parties involved," the mother of boxing star Davis' daughter wrote.

"I pride myself on being extremely private; this situation was the last thing I wanted to be made public.

"The state of our relationship has been in a fragile space and Gervonta and I were both at fault for the argument. While the emotions were running high I made an unnecessary call to law enforcement in an intense moment while I was frantic. Gervonta did not harm me or our daughter.

"Today, we have sought the help necessary to move forward with our lives. I am confident that we will succeed within our co-parenting dynamic with the counseling provided to us."

The promoter of the fight, which is set to take place on January 7 in Washington, has yet to make an official announcement. Davis, on the other hand, confirmed his participation in the Dominican fight via Twitter.
