This weekend I will be shooting the Ontario Boxing Hall of Fame induction ceremony and fights in Mississauga, ON. 11 people will be inducted at this inaugural event. The Ontario Boxing Association will have a amateur boxing show prior to the event, which I will be shooting. In addition I designed the Hall of Fame plaques that will be used for the event.
I had an opportunity to shoot with Kyle Millette, a freelance boxing coach out of London, ON. Kyle is completely obsessed with boxing, is in great shape and an awesome trainer. We did a bunch of promo shots for his company, CK Boxing. I always enjoy shooting at Boomerz Boxing Club.
On Saturday Feb 6th, I got to go over to Detroit to catch some boxing at the beautiful and historic Masonic Temple. The show was put on by Salita Promotions. It was a good action packed card with lots of local flavour. A really nice touch was the promoter, Dimitri Salita came over and spoke to everyone in the media section after the fights, a real class act. I love shooting fights in Detroit, it is a special, crazy atmosphere in the Motor City. Below are some of the good ones I captured.
