Boxer denies hurting woman, but 911 call shows emergency

Professional boxer Gervonta Davis claims he never harmed a woman who made a desperate 911 call this week, claiming to kill her.

Davis, 28, was arrested at his Parkland home on Tuesday after an unidentified woman approached the Broward Sheriff’s Office saying she feared for her life and safety.

After his release, the WBA lightweight champion proclaimed his innocence in a lengthy Instagram post. He denies he hurt the woman, who is the mother of his child.

“I never put my hands on the mother of my kids, or on my mom’s daughter, you fucking crazy!! I’m not a monster,” he said.

Davis added that he was seeking to “clear my name” because he lacked a spokesman, media team and “good lawyers”.

“I’ve been silent for too long,” he said.

But during the 911 call, the woman could be heard telling the operator she feared for her life.

Professional boxer Gervonta Davis, 28, was arrested Tuesday in Parkland and faces battery causing bodily harm and domestic violence charges. After he got out of prison, he denied hurting the woman who claimed he tried to hurt her.

“Please help me; I need help, please. I was trying to go home and I had a baby in the car and he attacked me…he was going to kill me,” she said.

The BSO recording also contains a conversation between the 911 operator and an unidentified Mercedes-Benz emergency services worker. During that discussion, the 911 operator was told that the victim called for help from her car.

Although Davis said he did not have an attorney, the woman he allegedly assaulted hired one. She is Lindsay Lawrence Chase, a former Broward County assistant public defender who is now a criminal trial attorney with the law firm of Robert Maloof in Fort Lauderdale. Chase filed a notice to appear on Wednesday on behalf of the woman, who is listed in court files as “DP.”

She had no immediate comment on the case Thursday.
