Taking shots: images from inside a boxing gym

No matter where you are in the world, you walk into a boxing gym and it smells the same.

The combination of gloves and hard work and sweat and leather punchbags that hangs in the air is a years-long culmination of hard training sessions. Of their joy, exhaustion and brutal fitness drills.

Ahead of a series of Herefordshire Live features on boxers and boxing in Herefordshire, here is glimpse inside one of those training sessions, featuring fighters and coaches from the excellent South Wye Police Boxing Academy.
