All Boxing gyms have a clock that structures time into three minutes rounds
for boxing and one minute to break.Three minutes skipping. One minute break.
Three minutes fighting. One minute break. Three minutes on the bag. One minute break.
In his first one-man show, Sean Mahoney has one of these clocks
hanging above his head, ticking and ringing, as he details ten years of
fighting and breaking growing up as a London amateur boxer.
Three minutes boxing, one minute with dad.
Three minutes boxing. One minute playing the Dreamcast.
Three minutes boxing. One minute revising for GCSE’s.
As the pressures
of choosing what his life will look like life begin to mount and the
three day a week training turns into something potentially more long-term
Sean has to try to make the right choices while contending with a
changing relationship with his father his school, and more importantly
whoever’s gloved up in the other corner.
