Boxing Clever

Putting the Community in the Ring

Boxing Clever gives a voice to a unique individual who is making a real, positive difference to his community. Imran's coaching skills lead to both touching and challenging encounters, painting a refreshing, inspirational portrait of how life in inner cities could be.

The cinematic documentary is a search for human potential and a thought provoking reflection on contemporary urban British community.

Imran Naeem puts would-be future world boxing champions through their paces in a sweaty Middlesbrough gym.

But he's not just teaching his pupils to deliver the perfect punch, his infectious enthusiasm is breaking down social and ethnic barriers in a multicultural society.

Boxing Clever gives a voice to a unique individual who is making a real, positive difference to his community.
