Former IBF super featherweight champion Gervonta Davis (19-0, 18 KOs) is to stand trial on a misdemeanour second-degree assault charge on November 29th.
The Baltimore Sun reports that Davis appeared before the Baltimore District Court and received the trial date yesterday.
Although the first-degree assault charge has since been dropped, the second-degree charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years and/or a $2,500 fine.
Davis is facing the charge in connection with an April 1st altercation with childhood friend Anthony Wheeler, who claimed that he was minding his own business at the Upton Boxing Centre when a fight broke out between Davis and his brother.
Wheeler said that he was knocked out by the punch and was later diagnosed with a concussion at St. Agnes Hospital.
