Boxing champion, and undefeated rising star Gervonta Davis doesn’t exactly have the most clean record when it comes to outside of the boxing ring. Most recently, he was involved in an altercation with hip-hop star Tekashi 6ix9ine while both attended a night-club in Miami.
The rap star was released from prison early this year after there was COVID-19 concerns. He was initially sentenced to 2 years in prison on racketeering charges.
When the rapper was released from prison, he began his journey back to becoming the biggest superstar in the hip-hop game, releasing multiple singles, including “Trollz” that debuted #1 on the Billboard 100, as well as an album. It’s safe to say Tekashi is one of the hottest names on the rap scene right now, but it probably wasn’t the best decision to try and pick beef with one of the most vicious knockout artists in the game right now.
It is unknown how the beef started, however, the two were seen in the same club in Miami this weekend, and it’s safe to say there was clearly tension in the room.
Davis on the other hand has also had a fantastic 2020. Davis had a fantastic year in 2019 earning three big knockout wins over some big name opponents including Hugo Ruiz, Yuriorkis Gamboa, and Ricardo Nunez. He came back big this year on Halloween, where he headlined a PPV, taking on 4-time champion Leo Santa Cruz, where he earned a 6th-round knockout, putting Santa Cruz to sleep.
It’s safe to say Davis has solidified his name as one of the best lightweights on the planet, and Tekashi has solidified his name as one of the biggest names in the hip-hop game.
Davis took to Instagram only days after the incident to call out the New York rapper calling him a “Snitch”.
Both superstars don’t have exactly the most clean past, but let’s hope each stay out of trouble and continue their path of greatness.
