Profile:

Cheavon (or Chev as he is known by his teammates at GB Boxing) first started boxing at 18-years-old when he got involved with the Fight 4 Change charity at Gravesham boxing club.

The appeal of boxing was that you get out what you put in and Chev preferred it to other sports, such as football, where he had become frustrated by playing with teammates who did not put in as much effort as he did.

Now an ambassador for Fight 4 Change, Chev has taken part in many visits for the charity and spoken at the Houses of Parliament and met Prince Charles.

His biggest career achievement to-date was wining the England Boxing elite national finals in 2017.  He joined the GB Boxing squad soon after and was promoted to the Podium Squad later the same year.
