The referee holds up Harvinder Jutte's hand as she is announced the winner of her fight against Emily Williams at a white collar boxing event at the London Irish Centre where the 'Carpe Diem' boxing event is taking place. 'White-collar boxing' is a growing phenomenon amongst well paid office workers and professionals and has seen particular growth in financial centres like London, Hong Kong and Shanghai. It started at a blue-collar gym in Brooklyn in 1988 with a bout between an attorney and an academic and has since spread all over the world. The sport is not regulated by any professional body in the United Kingdom and is therefore potentially dangerous, as was proven by the death of a 32-year-old white-collar boxer at an event in Nottingham in June 2014. The London Irish Centre, amongst other venues, hosts a regular bout called 'Carpe Diem'. At most bouts participants fight to win. Once boxers have completed a few bouts they can participate in 'title fights' where they compete for a replica 'belt'. ©Andrew Testa for the Sunday Times Magazine
