BOXING has long been recognised as an effective method of dealing with mental health issues and a new campaign is being launched to raise awareness.

‘The Hardest Fight’ focuses on positive stories of how boxing has helped numerous people handle their mental illness by getting involved in the sport at non-competitive levels.

The campaign is the brainchild of Owain Astles, a filmmaker from Bristol who knows first-hand how impactful boxing can be on one’s mental health.
