Thierry Des Fontaines recently had the unique opportunity of capturing a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the rigorous training of the world-renowned Nova Uniao team in Brazil. Athletes from all over the globe come to train with this elite group known for producing World Champions including female fighter Poliana Bothelo. Boxers that have upcoming bouts spar for 20 minutes with a break every 5 minutes, and with a fresh fighter every 3 minutes.

Shot in Flamengo in Rio de Janeiro.
