Boxing Futures was established by Anthony in 2013, to realise his ambition to provide an alternative outlet to young people involved, or at risk of becoming involved, in the youth justice system.

Anthony believed that improving both the physical and mental wellbeing of such young people would develop their ability to address some of the obstacles they faced in life and reduce anti-social behaviour.
