A Suffolk mother has won her first boxing match at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic games, securing her place in the Round of 16.

Lowestoft resident, Charley-Sian Davison, competed in the Women's Flyweight Round of 32 fight today against Morocco's Rabab Cheddar, winning the round following a unanimous decision from five judges.

Charley had an impressive fight, scoring the maximum of ten points from every judge in round one and round three.

The 27-year-old mother-of-three, who trained at Attleborough Boxing Club, began boxing when she was eight years old in her hometown of Lowestoft, initially training with her father on pads at home.

She took a break from boxing aged 19 to start her family and, seven years later, returned to the ring, qualifying for the GB Boxing team.

Charley's next fight is Thursday, July 29, when she will face China's Yuan Chang in the Round of 16.
