A series of shots showing a fighter and coach training ‘on the pads’.
These were taken at a very rough and run down boxing gym in the middle of a council estate in the North of England.
The place is falling apart and underfunded but provides an escape from the streets. The people who train here are from a generally poor and underprivileged background. This is somewhere to stay fit, focused and learn some discipline.
