GERVONTA DAVIS' showdown with Ryan Garcia is seemingly in jeopardy as the WBA 135lb champion was spotted in a wheelchair at the weekend.
The Baltimore bruiser was in attendance at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas for Super Bowl 58 on Sunday night.
But he was spotted leaving the venue in a wheelchair as he was flanked by his entourage.
According to TMZ, Davis was nursing an ankle injury – the severity of which is unknown.
The WBA (regular) lightweight champion said of the injury: "S**t happen all the time.
"S*** be happening. But I'm all right."

De La Hoya, however, is hoping the squabble will soon be resolved.
