Produced for Port Magazine, the Anthony Austin Fitzroy Lodge short film portrays the sentimentality and devotion surrounding the boxing lodge located in London, England under Waterloo station. The boxers interviewed discuss how boxing turned their lives around and they give homage to the recently deceased Michael Carney, who ran Fitzroy Lodge and acted as a father figure to them.

Discussing the feelings and emotion behind the sport, David Matthews explains how boxing can give street kids a place to go where they can have a sense of purpose, discipline and something to focus on, stating that "boxing is an art." The Anthony Austin Fitzroy Lodge film is a thoughtful look at the passion behind the sport.
