I think this photo works well Allex whether as a portrait or a piece of photo journalism. Although it looks like a posed shot in that he is not in action you do get a real sense of the action with all the sweat. Nice eye contact as well and the huge gloves compared to his little face - make him look a bit vulnerable somehow although I guess he can pack a punch.
I like this, Allex. However, I find the gloves overpowering, and they are the first thing that catches the eye, rather than the child's face. The white parts of the gloves are very bright and I wonder if it would be better to have him with the gloves facing downwards so that it's mostly the red part that is seen. The gloves are obviously a feature and need to be in the shot. Not an easy one to get right because of the colour of his skin, for which the light seems just right.
thats a wicked portrait well done. people dont appreciate this type of stuff enough
I actually quite like tha black background. I think though, that the background has to have no objects whatsoever in it. So it is a straight portriat with no distractions. I love the shot, I went to chaing mai about a month ago and loved it!
Oh I think if you can try and get some detail back in those gloves if possible
great shot well done
There is a lot of story in this image, however I feel that it is not portrayed to its best advantage - the main issue I have is the straight on shot - this is compounded by the huge gloves.
I have uploaded a mod ( not as a replacement image) as an attempt using photoshop to try to image what the image would have looked like had you posed the person or move to reflect a less full on shot.

Really to say I agree with John. I am a fan of the black background. It is nice to see that there are no distractions and we can focus on the boy.
Half the glove behind his head would have been a better pose, us martial artists, will hid that hand, behind our heads before the strike..it works...but the half a glove behind the head here just may have really worked here for the shot... Chen.
I like this shot. However would like to see the bit of black towel on was waist removed.
Also I often fine on darker skinned models or oily skin that normal flash gives burn out spots, as on the forehead. Try to shot the flash back into a small reflector to stop this.
Or at least when traveling light take a soffen.
I actually like the fully black background. That's your call as the photographer & with out knowing the background I can't comment.
