Davis donated 100 tickets to the staff and beneficiaries at WIN Family Services. WIN (What I Need) is a Baltimore-based organization that helps “support and strengthen youth, families, organizations and communities through the creation of innovative services, products and initiatives.”

“I know what’s in front of me. I am living in the moment right now. I know what I have to focus on now. I know it’s a big task in front of me, now and in the future,” Davis said Thursday. “But my focus is on right now. I feel like the love is here right now and I don’t want to look past that. I want to soak it all in.”

Mayor Jack Young will honor Davis to City Hall ahead of his title defense.

Davis is the first World Champion from Baltimore to make a homecoming defense in almost 80 years and Mayor Young will honor this historic event by presenting him with a Key to the City.
