This. Was. Amazing. I have always wanted to photograph fighters and I finally, out of dumb luck, got the chance. My husband and son and I headed way the heck up to Messina, NY where an amateur boxing tournament was being held at the Three Feathers Casino. I had the pleasure of being almost in the ring with these guys AND girls as they punched it out.
The bes part was the intensity in their faces and the sweat spray. I was a little nervous about being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but it all worked out.
Very cool experience.
