Shams Charania reported that Glen Davis will compete on Jake Paul’s upcoming fight card on August 13.

The original plan, according to Shams, was for Davis to fight former NBA star Larry Sanders. Due to the latter’s commitment to the Big3 basketball league, those plans were scrapped.

After being drafted out of LSU by the Seattle SuperSonics in the 2007 NBA Draft, Davis was traded to the Boston Celtics. From 2007-2010, he played for Boston, winning the NBA Championship in his rookie year.

Davis was essentially a bench player throughout his career, starting just 121 of the 514 games in which he saw action, averaging 8.0 points and 4.4 rebounds per game.

Recently Davis and 18 former NBA players were charged with defrauding the league’s healthcare plan of about $4 million. Fraudulent proceeds of $3.9 million were received by players after false claims of $2.5 million. New York federal prosecutors indicted Davis. A few of the veterans charged were instructed to repay the healthcare plan proceeds they received.

Has Glen "Big Baby" Davis run afoul of the law?

During Game 4 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals, ABC cameras spotted Glen “Big Baby” Davis eating snacks while sitting courtside – but according to Larry Brown Sports, Davis was not permitted to attend the game in Boston.

“(My life) was like a maze; I was lucky to make the right turn at the right time,” he said. “At first, I was headed down paths that were not good, where you’re either dead or you’re in jail."

In terms of a combat sports career, Glen Davis is inexperienced. According to “Big Baby,” he would prefer to fight a football player, but he is open to fighting Mike Tyson.  While he has no prior combat sports competition to his name, Davis trained MMA at Wai Kru in Allston, Mass.

Another Victim for The Circus

One of the most intriguing aspects of a Jake Paul fight night is how other sports overlap. Other athletes who have fought on Paul’s cards include Deron Williams, Frank Gore, Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley, and Nate Robinson.
