Boxing class at Bethnal Green Men's Institute
Boxing training at Bethnal Green Men's Institute. Several key sites in the history of British boxing lie within a five minute walk of this site: the house where Daniel Mendoza lived in the late 1700s; the boxing club considered to be the oldest in Britain, founded in 1884 as the Repton Boys Club; and the 'home' of British boxing, York Hall.
