Top boxer Nasr Ali Awad is taking advantage of the four-month truce between Yemen’s rival factions to train youth in one of the country’s favorite sports.

Awad, who won several international and local boxing championships runs his workshops amid the rubble of war in the southern port city of Aden where some semblance of normalcy has emerged over the summer.

Awad told A24 that he hopes to inspire teens to develop their skills and qualify for international competitions.
