This project features boxer, Zach Deegan. This work began as a photography project, but then expanded to include a short film in which Zach discusses what he thinks boxing is about, why he boxes and what it means to him.
You need to be brave, you need to be tough, you need to have spirit and determination.
You don't really choose boxing, boxing chooses you.
All the physical gifts: speed and power and fitness, they're all secondary to just will. Willpower and stubbornness.
I'm just built for it really. Whatever I was made from - some people believe it was god, or genetics, or environment - whatever shaped me, I was built for boxing, I was built for fighting.
