“Focus on staying out of prison” Conor Benn brutally mocks Gervonta Davis over domestic violence charge

Conor Benn, the son of former champion Nigel Benn, was supposed to square off against Chris Eubank Jr., but prior to the fight, the current WBA Continental welterweight title holder was tested positive for using drugs, which resulted in postponing the fight.

Benn’s promoter released a statement saying that the 26-year-old was not violating any rule and that they want the fight to continue, “Benn has not been charged with any rule violation, he is not suspended, and he remains free to fight.”

Many boxers didn’t take the statement positively; Gervonta Davis was one of them. Davis took to Twitter and publicly criticized Benn’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, for trying to put off the fight despite the fact that Benn was taking drugs.

“Why they didn’t ban Eddie Hearn for still trying to have fights after he knew a fighter was cheating and still tried to continue with the boxing match?”

Gervonta Davis is set to return to the ring against Héctor García on January 7, 2023, at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C., to defend his WBA (regular) lightweight title.

Prior to his title defending battle there is a lot happening in his life. Last Tuesday he got arrested due to the charge of domestic battery, but after the next day’s hearings this undefeated fighter got a bail that cost him $1000, and the judge issued a No Contact order with the victim.

After this incident Benn took the opportunity and opens up on Twitter, The Destroyer tweeted,

 “@Gervontaa Don’t throw stones if you live in a glass house little man.”

As expected, Davis didn’t take this tweet positively, prior to Benn’s tweet he replied,

“Get off them drugs. I’ll show a glass house and a glass jaw, you f***ing bum.”

Benn didn’t stop mocking Tank, he later tweeted and advised Davis to be careful about not going to jail.

“@Gervontaa them threats don’t work here. Focus on staying out of prison.”
