Not a lover of boxing myself, Dan, but a good action capture. How's your new baby? Carol

Loathe the professional sport, but it's a wonderful subject! Great to see hard b&w, it conveys aggression and sweat. Back to your roots...

A cracking sporting image, sharp and well focused as well as being a great frame filler.

Well caught with plenty of action. The ice cold look of the boxer on the right is quite menacing.

I dislike hearing about all the injuries sustained by boxers, but have no problem seeing images such as these. There is intense concentration here, and sweat too - it's beautifully converted to mono.

When I was a young'un I watched both boxing and wrestling with my dad - I found wrestling the most fun to watch.

Yes I am inclined to agree with you Anne but I love sport of any kind and I love photographing it. I feel I am testing my wits and reactions against the competitors without the risks involved.

The change has done us good it seems Danny. A GE and a lot of comments. My Dad was a boxing fan and he used to get his blood pressure up listening on the radio, TV made him even more explosive as he jumped out of his seat. Agra=eat fan of a boxer who died just a couple of weeks ago, He would have been very sad. Was it Carmen Basilio?
