I was in Horden in County Durham a couple of days ago on assignment for Getty Images shooting material for a pre-election feature on the town. During the day that I spent there I came across a boxing club and after a little digging found out that it was open later that evening so I decided to go along to Horden Amateur Boxing Club and have a chat and try to arrange to shoot a few pictures.

On the evening I went back and there were around 15 people attending, ranging in age from 10 to 27 all under the expert eye of head trainer, Liam. During a relatively short period of time I photographed them training and it was good to see the commitment and dedication of the youngsters to their training and the keenness that they went about the training they were asked to do.

It offers the boxers and especially the youngest amongst them an opportunity to commit to something and gives them an outlet and it’s a place I’d like to go back to and spend a little more time there than I had the other evening.

Below are a few of the pictures I shot in the brief time I was there….
