On Wednesday evenings George Khosi (left), founder of the Hillbrow Boxing Club, runs a prayer meeting in the club's basement. After gunshot injuries from a home invasion put an end to his own boxing career, Khosi started the club to provide discipline, camaraderie and an activity away from the streets for young people from the community, as well as to provide a training ground for upcoming professional boxers. The club operates in the donated space of the forecourt of a disused petrol station in Hillbrow, one of Johannesburg's most notorious neighbourhoods.
