Fighting Father Dave

When Anglican priest Dave Smith took over the parish of Dulwich Hill in a suburb of the Australian city of Sydney 26 years ago, it was a tough place. If he was going to get through to the troubled young people there, he was going to need something other than sermons. As he told Outlook's Jo Fidgen, he turned to a hobby that had come to mean a lot to him... boxing.
