Boxer Joe Calzaghe spars with MP David Davies

A Welsh MP has been gearing up for the election fight - by trading punches with boxing legend Joe Calzaghe.

Monmouth Conservative David Davies donned the gloves to spar with the former world champion at his boxing academy in Cardiff.

The MP, a keen amateur boxer, was visiting the city in his role as chair of the Welsh Affairs Committee.

MPs visited Calzaghe's gym as part of their inquiries into prisons and ways to steer young people away from offending.
