Deep in the basement of the Port Augusta Town Hall is the local boxing club. While conducting a Portrait of a Stranger workshop I was able to grab this footage.

Incredibly the front of the building is derelict and empty but the not-for-profit club has access to these cavernous rooms where they conduct rigorous training sessions to become 'boxer fit'. The rooms flood quite often with heavy rains and smells of damp and sweat. It really is boxing 'down under'.

Even though Jason Daw (red) and Adrian Rowe (blue) are just sparing it still seems very rough! I thought the setting was very 'Fight Club' though I restrained from punching myself in the face.
