TOKYO, Japan — It was a major stepping stone for Keyshawn Davis. The Norfolk native has advanced through the second round of boxing's lightweight division in the Olympics. 

He beat the #1 seed in the division, France's Sofiane Oumiha by TKO in the second round of their fight late Friday night. 

It takes 5 wins to take home the gold medal. Davis has 3 more to go. He is the best hope for a gold medal for the United States in boxing. An American male has not won boxing gold since 2004. 

The next bout for Davis is late Tuesday night.
