...is a gritty sports documentary photography book following a hardened group of unlicensed white collar boxers in the middle of England.  The group is called UBL (Ultimate Boxing League) which is ran by a Gypsy called Jerry Gorman (nephew of the late undefeated bare knuckle boxing champion of England and Ireland) and Elvis Hopkins.

This group is ran professionally, has a huge following and amazing loyalty from the lads that throw themselves in to the ring.  They usually have around a thousand spectators come to watch the bouts.  You can get more information by checking out their Facebook page
