Mother-of-three to fight for Olympic place

Share This

Charley Davison is the English national amateur champion in the -54kg category.
As a mother of three, Charley Davison thought her boxing days were over.
She took a seven-year break from the ring as she started a family having won a European youth gold medal and a world silver as a teenager.
But the 26-year-old flyweight from Lowestoft is now dreaming of Tokyo after being selected for this weekend’s Great Britain qualifying event.
“I didn’t think I’d come back to be honest,” she said. “I didn’t think I’d be able to cope or to train.”
Davison added: “I’ve got a lot of support around me. I initially went to the gym to try to lose a bit of weight but I’ve not looked back.”
Davison, who sparred with double gold medallist Nicola Adams in the build-up to the London 2012 Olympic Games, says she uses her children, aged seven, five and three, as extra motivation.
