In Belgium, Ostend’s nearly mythical Flandria Box Club opened its doors in 1959 – and has been through both periods of national success and decline ever since.

Housed in the Royal stables where it supports both professional and amateur boxing talent, the club is a time capsule filled with boxing tournament posters, historical photos, newspaper cut-outs and other trivia. Its current form, largely attributed to the club's long-standing coach Eddy Vandenhouweele is now set to transform, possibly losing its distinct character as the building is about to undergo reconstruction.
