Four amateur boxers from Norfolk will be competing in the National Championship tournament in Ralston, Nebraska, later this May.
Featured at the USA Boxing event are 20-year-old Jayda Davis, , 21-year-old Kelvin Davis, 26-year-old Christian Salinas and 19-year-old Nick Sullivan
The Boxers first started their journey to Golden Gloves USA Boxing national event earlier this year and earned the chance to compete in Nebraska after first qualifying at regionals in Washington D.C and Norfolk
The group of boxers has certainly put in a lot of work. Jayda Davis who has been boxing for seven years has been working at the Norfolk Boxing and Fitness Center between her own training and going to school at Norfolk State University, where she is a freshman.
“I fell in to boxing, because (as a kid) I had anger issues and was over weight,” said Davis, who also came to the sport through her father’s side of the family.
