Boxer Gervonta Davis has claimed that jewellery has been stolen from his home in California just hours after he had paraded a £5million chain and watches on Instagram.
The fighter had posted a clip of himself showing off his multi-million pound possessions, and urged his followers to ‘catch up’ while revelling in the price tag.
But soon after, Davis revealed that his jewellery had been robbed and believes the individuals responsible will soon sell them.

The 24-year-old is the unbeaten protege of Floyd Mayweather, having claimed 21 KOs in his 22 professional bouts so far – and has now moved up into the lightweight division, according to the WBA’s latest rankings.
And Davis, with an estimated net worth of over $2m, appears to have splashed the cash on an array of expensive jewellery – including three watches.
But shortly after making the purchases, the boxer was rocked by a surprise break-in at his California home with the robbers making off with at least £5m of Davis’ prized belongings.

The former super-featherweight had vacated his belt earlier this month and will now campaign at 135lbs.
And Davis revealed that he was confident he would soon take on Vasyl Lomachenko, who is widely believed to be the best pound for pound puncher in the world.
He told ESPN: ‘I want to be in position to fight for a belt.
‘So if I can get one of the champions or get someone that would line me up to get a belt then I’m cool with that.
‘Lomachenko is definitely one of the top opponents for me at 130 or 135.
‘I believe it will happen, but it got to be at the right time.’
