For the first time ever in the history of the Olympic Games, women’s boxing has been added to the London 2012 programme; with medals in three weights. Fly weight (48kg-51kg), Light weight (56kg-60kg) and Middle weight (69kg-75kg). This sport has mainly been dominated by the male world. However in recent years, there has been a huge increase in interest for women taking part. Some choose to do it for their fitness but others train to become champions. This photographic documentary explores the world of such a physically demanding sport, focusing on the women who fight against prejudice and push through barriers of such a controversial issue in the sporting community.
