World Boxing Association Lightweight title holder Gervonta "Tank" Davis was arrested Tuesday, December 27, in Parkland, Florida, and jailed on a domestic violence charge of battery causing bodily harm, ESPN reported.

According to Broward County Sheriff's Office, Davis, 28, remains in custody at Broward County's Main Jail Bureau in Fort Lauderdale following a Wednesday morning court hearing, where bond was set at $1,000, via CBS Sports.

Davis, (27-0, 25 KOs) is scheduled to headline a Premier Boxing Champions on Showtime Pay Per View event against Hector Luis Garcia (16-0, 10 KOs) on Jan. 7, at Capital One Arena, in Washington, D.C. The bout was planned as a prelude to an April 25, superfight in Las Vegas, Nevada against Ryan Garcia (23-0, 19 KO's).

The Baltimore, Maryland native is also set to appear in Baltimore Circuit Court on Feb. 16 for his alleged involvement in an unrelated hit-and-run incident in November 2020, according to court records, per ESPN. Davis, who has held multiple world championships in three weight classes, is facing 14 charges, including failure to immediately return and remain at the scene of an accident involving bodily injury.

Details of Davis' arrest and the allegations against him are not yet available, ESPN reported. The southpaw pro boxer remained in custody overnight in Florida, where he was in training. Davis was set to appear before a judge Wednesday morning, where charges and bond recommendations will be formally introduced, according to CBS Sports.
