This is not the most glamourous boxing gym (it’s in a carpark), but it is possibly one of the best in London. The trainers focus on technique but also make sure you work so hard that you have nothing left in the tank. People who train here are all fight-ready and very serious about the sport, so you won’t dare to slack off. I went to Pete Liggins’ Box Technical and a few of his weekend sessions and I’m a huge fan – non-stop cardio drills, circuits, bag and pad work. I’d train here full time if it weren’t so far from me!
