Olympic dream Davis aims for Games after GB chance
CHELTENHAM boxer Kerry Davis has recently joined the Great Britain boxing team in the middleweight division.
She is a member of the women’s development squad and throughout 2019 will be working to make her way up to podium potential, then onto podium.
Davis has been accepted onto the squad to make her way towards the 2024 Olympic Games - and if the opportunity arises she could compete in 2020.
The 21-year-old used to box for a few clubs in Cheltenham, starting out at the Cheltenham Boxing Academy under Pat Lewis.
She moved to Cheltenham KO Boxing Academy under Simon Lewis, which is where her boxing career really took off, representing Cheltenham KO and fighting for England numerous times and winning seven championship titles.
This included fights in England, Ireland and Sweden and her current record stands at 28 fights with 23 wins and five defeats.
Davis still lives in Cheltenham but she boxes for Heart of Portsmouth Boxing Academy under Quinton Shillingford and for Team GB.
