East London Heartbreaker Dudley O'Shaughnessy Throws Punches in High Style

Photographer Sharif Hamza captures boxer-turned-model Dudley O'Shaughnessy demonstrating the finesse and intense concentration that training for the sport demands. The 22-year-old rogue beauty stepped into the ring at the respected West Ham Boxing Club at the age of nine, following in the footsteps of his father and brother, both boxers. "Their trophies were my Action Men," says the Canning Town-bred youngster. Armed with his trademark sleek style, O'Shaughnessy went on to become the senior Amateur Boxing Association welterweight champion last year and narrowly missed a place on Team GB for the 2012 Olympics. Scouted as a model aged 19, and currently represented by Next Model Management, the blue-eyed, six-foot-one stunner has recently added acting to his CV, starring in Rihanna's steamy music video for “We Found Love,” as well as in two short films. Here, the fighter answers a round of quick-fire questions.

    Absolutely, one of the very best pieces I've ever seen. It says so much more than just what is seen,So much if it is what is heard in training.How those sounds are transported to the next man a fighter will face in the "square circle."
