Johannesburg children boxing their way out of trouble

Hillbrow is one of Johannesburg's most notorious neighbourhoods.

But in the shell of a converted petrol station one man is doing his best to help keep the neighbourhood's children away from the threat of drugs and crime.

George Khosi, who was himself shot in the face, gives local children free boxing lessons and is helping to shape a new generation of South African champions.
