(Photograph) - Knock-out blow: a young boxer takes aim at a club in Stratford, east London, where he is preparing for the National Schools Championship run by the Schools' Amateur Boxing Association. The British Medical Association today urged councils to ban the sport - a move opposed by the SABA.
