Time Out!

Elliott Matthews VS Richard Harrison at York Hall Situated on Old Ford Road in Bethnal Green, London in the heart of Tower Hamlets; York Hall is one of England's best known Boxing venues. Many great names such as Benn, Haye and Lennox Lewis have passed through York Hall. A young Ricky Hatton retained many of his titles there. York hall has been heralded as one of the best places to watch live boxing in the UK due to its heratiage and atmosphere.

On 8th April 2017 Hellraiser Boxing hosted another fight night. I was granted a ring side press pass for the night to come and show support for a fellow Watford lad Elliot Matthews who was up against Richard Harrison.

I had recently been loaned by Hasselblad their mirrorless X1D to test drive, so I took it to the show coupled with the 30mm XCD f3.5 lens.

Throughout the evening the performance of the camera was outstanding, delivering results you would exect from Hasselblad. The focussing system took a little while to get used to but soon became very intuative. Peaking in manual focus mode is eceptionally accurate.

More images from the shoot are available on my website
