On the coast in Ghana is the neighbourhood of Bukom. This tiny community has produced more boxing world champions per square metre than any other place on earth. Some believe that generations of fishing has eventually developed genetics most suitable for this work - bodies that can cope with high intensity work with little rest over a prolonged period of time. Boxing demands the same. This combined with limited employment opportunities gives boys little choice. Fight or fish.
