Boxing: The Fitzroy Lodge on film

In association with Mother, Port look at one of South London’s greatest amateur sporting institutions in this short film

Located under the arches of Waterloo station, for over 100 years boys have gone to the Fitzroy Lodge to discover the essence of their masculinity. In Port issue 7, we spoke to David Matthews, Glenn Charles and Daniel Day-Lewis about their thoughts on boxing.

Here, we see the club in action and remember Mick Carney, MBE the “thin…stylish, handsome dog” at the heart of the Fitzroy Lodge who sadly passed away last year.
