Boxing champion Gervonta Davis gives back to the community as Thanksgiving Day approaches

Gervonta Davis, with the help of Mayweather Promotions, give away over 100 turkeys for Las Vegas residents just before Thanksgiving Day

Boxing fighter Gervonta Davis gives back to the community as he prepares for his upcoming main event on December 5th versus the Mexican boxer, Isaac Cruz.

On Tuesday, the 27-year-old American boxer was seen giving away up to 150 turkeys, shopping gift card, and other Thanksgiving donations to residents in the Las Vegas Community. 

Davis says that this kind of generosity reminds him of how he would appreciate when he would receive assistance when he was a kid during the holidays. 

“It's always great to be able to lend a hand and help. I was always looking for someone to help me when I was a child, so being able to help others means a lot to me."

The Baltimore native didn't have a full-family experience growing up to enjoy traditional holiday celebrations, but he says that thanks to the professional position he is today, Davis is able to provide that experience for his loved ones. 

“When I was a kid I didn't have a whole family together to celebrate Thanksgiving, but now I have my two little girls and I'm definitely excited about the holidays. I will miss Thanksgiving for the fight, but Christmas will be great this year."

Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe says that Davis is using his gratitude to return the love back to his supporters who have helped get to where he is today. 

"Gervonta is extremely grateful for being able to be where he is now, helping so many people. He is also grateful and appreciates the way fans gravitate towards him, and he wants to return that affection to those less fortunate. When one is in one's position, gratitude should be forever."

In less than two weeks, Davis and Cruz will face-off for the WBA lightweight championship title at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, presented live through Showtime PPV on Sunday December 5th.
