Gladsaxe Boxing Club visits Nottingham to help youths


A week after Carl Froch beat Mikkel Kessler, boxers from Nottingham and Denmark traded blows again but this time to help fight crime and anti-social behaviour.

Gladsaxe Boxing Club, from a town near Copenhagen, have visited the city to see how the sport can help young people get out of a life of gangs and crime.

Marcellus Baz, from Nottingham's KK School of Boxing, said: "It is helping people get an understanding of a different lifestyle, engaging them in positive activities and enabling them to get out of that criminal mentality and get back into the community."

The club teaches teenagers about discipline and also helps with CVs and job applications.
