Jamestown Knockout

Jamestown Knockout - By Andreas Jakwerth - Photographer Vienna

As we turn and walk into one of the many backyards in Jamestown, we stumble across a young boxer named Richmond Kpakpo. Sweat running down his face I take a portrait, it shows his state of mind: Beaten but willing to give even more.

In this series I followed boxers all around Jamestown in Ghana┬┤s capitol Accra. They train to become world champion like their idol Azumah Nelson. They train to get out of the slums, to have a better life for their families and themselves.

Or maybe just to become the best boxer in the world…
