PUBLISHED: 10:00 10 January 2020
A photographer has travelled the country taking pictures of well-known boxers to raise funds for an Upminster charity.
Knives Down Gloves Up was started by Paul Kavanagh, 44, from Upminster. The charity works to tackle knife crime by getting young people off the streets and into the boxing gyms.
Top boxing photographer, Jennifer Charlton has persuaded a number of boxers to be snapped for the good cause.
The Scottish-based photographer said: "It's terrible what is going on in our country.

"The boxers have all got behind it and hopefully it can raise awareness and money for a great cause."
Recently crowned World light-welterweight champion and Muhammed Ali Trophy winner, Josh Taylor, is the star name to be pictured in the calendar.
So too are the two welterweights who produced one of the fights of the year - arch rivals Lewis Ritson and Robbie Davies Jnr.
