Dr. First – Boxing Club Rubin

In the field of boxing, the young boxers in Kiew are the same as street soccer players in the field of soccer: They are training with rusty weights, the boxing rings are totally rotten, new boxing gloves are a great financial problem, instead of boxing shoes they are wearing cheap sneakers and their sportswear is sewed by their mothers.

Nevertheless, boxing is very popular and the boys are hungry for the chance to fight their way out of poverty. In numberless shabby clubs and bad equipped schools, the boys are training and boxing with a yearning expression. They dream about Olympic medals and at the World Championships of their age-group they always belong to the best.
