Cruel to be kind - 3

By Drummerdelight
The Belgian title boxer Hakim at work. The fight took 10 rounds and was very nerve racking as he was having a hard time to preserve his title of best lightweight boxer...

He lost his title in the end.

I can 't resist including the color version & sepia for the more old school look.

It has to be the monochrome. Great point of view and capture. The monochrome bringing out the very best of the detail.

Great action shot, from a good POV. I like all 3 versions
I agree with colin beeley about the top rh light! A crop off the top would sort that out!
I also love the expressions caught on the ringside faces!
