Boxer Gervonta Davis is being sued ‘for punching a parking lot attendant in the chest in New York last March’… and was ‘shouting and cursing’ at the worker during the incident before driving away in his Cadillac
Boxer Gervonta Davis is in trouble again and is reportedly being sued for punching a parking lot attendant in the chest in New York back in March 2022.
According to TMZ, Davis was frustrated when two parking lot attendants had taken their time getting the keys to his car – a Cadillac Escalade – and told one worker, Arturo Jimenez, to ‘stop f***ing playing with me’.
Jimenez then alleges Davis punched him in the chest and caused multiple injuries.
Apparently a co-worker with Jimenez witnessed the incident with an irate Davis who was shouting and cursing. It is claimed that he first refused to pay his parking fee, before eventually doing so and driving away.
Jiminez was allegedly unable to work and had medical bills as a result of the injury.

The 28-year-old Davis is unbeaten in 28 fights, recording 26 KOs in the process
It comes on the day Davis took to social media to announce a new fight against Ryan Garcia.
Davis wrote on his Twitter: ‘April 22, 2023, Las Vegas, It’s on! Davis Garcia GOOOOO’.
Davis pleaded guilty Thursday to charges stemming from a November 2020 hit and run that left four people injured, officials said.
His case was scheduled for trial, but Davis entered a guilty plea instead. His sentencing is scheduled for May 5.
Davis, 28, had just left a downtown Baltimore nightclub the morning of the crash. He was driving a 2020 Lamborghini when he ran a red light and crashed into a Toyota, according to charging documents.
The Lamborghini crashed into a fence after hitting the Toyota, and surveillance video from a nearby convenience store showed the driver, later identified as Davis, and a female passenger quickly leave the scene in a black Chevy Camaro that came to pick them up, the documents say. The Camaro later arrived at a Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Baltimore.
Davis, whose driver´s license was suspended, fled to the hotel before Baltimore police officers arrived at the crash site, where occupants of the Toyota suffered bruises, cuts and sprains, according to police. They were transported to a nearby hospital for treatment, police said.
Davis initially faced over a dozen counts. He pleaded guilty to four: leaving the scene of an accident involving bodily injury, failing to notify an owner of property damage, driving on a revoked license and running a red light.
The news emerges on the day Davis announced his next fight against Ryan Garcia in April
Last December, Davis was arrested for domestic violence but spoke out against the allegations in a lengthy and at times erratic social media post that he later deleted.
Davis broke his silence a day following the arrest, and just hours after his release from jail, defiantly rejecting allegations he had hit a woman with a ‘close hand-type slap.’
He said in a lengthy post on his Instagram profile, which has since been deleted: ‘I NEVER PUT MY HANDS ON MY CHILD MOTHER NOR MY F***ING DAUGHTER ARE YOU F****** CRAZY!!
‘I’ve been quiet for too long. I don’t have media team, PR, good lawyer…spokesman nothing off that… that’s the only reason I’m doing this now! Just to clear my name!
‘[I] have a f***ing helicopter flying over my house now as I write this because they look at this s*** as money to them and trying to get as much money as possible.’
In his previous fight in January, Davis beat Hector Luis Garcia after a brutal eighth round barrage that left him telling his corner he couldn’t see.
