Davis, just 22, took the second-highest honor in Olympic lightweight boxing in his first year at the games.
He beat out other boxers from Armenia, France, the Netherlands, and the Russian Olympic Committee for the silver. Davis lost to Andy Cruz from Cuba in a split decision in his last fight.
A flyer shared by Davis' sister, Shantel, says he, his family and city officials will then speak about the experience from Norfolk Scope Plaza.
