Baltimore boxer Gervonta Davis walked away from what he describes as a plane crash at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport in Florida on Saturday afternoon around 2 p.m.
According to the not-safe-for-work video the professional boxer posted on Twitter and Instagram Live, “The plane didn’t take off. It took off, but didn’t take off.”
Davis went on to say that he didn’t suffer any significant injuries.
CBS4 reported that the Federal Aviation Administration said that the multi-engine Gulfstream G-IV had a landing gear malfunction while taking off.
The report added that 14 people were aboard and there was one minor injury. It is not known it that minor injury was Davis’.
At one point, in a video posted on YouTube, he is seen shoeless, picking something off the soles of his left foot.
Repeated calls to Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport went unanswered.
The Baltimore-born southpaw defeated World Boxing Association champion Mario Barrios in June. Nicknamed “Tank,” he has 25 wins in 25 fights, 24 of them by knockout. He has held multiple world championships in three different weight classes. But he has also had legal troubles, including various arrests and a pending indictment for leaving the scene of a car crash that sent four people to the hospital.
As for future flights, the super featherweight title holder says, “I’m driving or catching a train.”
