Davis pleaded guilty in February to four offenses; leaving the scene of an accident involving bodily injury, driving with a revoked license, running a red light and failing to notify of property damage.
In the crash, four people suffered various injuries, including a pregnant woman.
Circuit Judge Althea M. Handy said in February that in pleading guilty Davis was doing so on the understanding there is ‘no agreement of what penalty will be at sentencing.’
Davis’ sentencing comes after his seventh-round knockout win over Ryan Garcia on April 22 in front of a packed Las Vegas crowd.
The pair fought at a 136-pound catchweight that saw Davis improve his professional record to 29-0.
At approximately 2am on November 5, 2020, Davis – according to the prosecution – drove a Lamborghini under police escort after leaving a nightclub in downtown Baltimore.
At one time, he allegedly veered away from the convoy, running a red light and subsequently struck the passenger side of a 2004 Toyota Solara.
Inside was pregnant woman, Jyair Smith, alongside three other passengers. The prosecution alleged that David made eye contact with Smith but never came to her aid.
