Detroit Fights - Motor City Casino

A good night of fights in Detroit last month. Lots of great fight photos. Tonnes of pro boxers in attendance at the Motor City Casino. Thanks to Carlos Llinas for having me out.

Photos with Professional Wrestler Sienna

Professional Wrestler Sienna came from Detroit to do a fun, promo shoot with me. We captured some of her MMA moves, then her wrestling stuff and then some random fun stuff after. Sienna was fun to be around and was willing to try all of the bizarre idea I had with her jumping off of things, etc.

SHOBOX - Clarissa Shields Fight - MGM Grand Detroit

Friday night I had the opportunity to photograph the SHOBOX event and the MGM Grand Detroit. It was a great night of fights and I had a ringside seat. I got to see some old friends, meet some great new people and watch the fights. Boxing is a beautiful sport.

This was an historic night as it was the first time female boxers headlined a SHOBOX card. Congratulations to Clarissa Shields for capturing the NABF Middleweight Championship.

Detroit Brawl - Professional Boxing

Hopped over to Detroit for some pro boxing at the Masonic Temple. Salita Promotions was the promoter for this show and put on a good card.

Boxing Tonight at the Motor City Casino

Night of Knockouts VII is tonight at the Motor City Casino. That place had the best lighting I ever shot in. I'm looking forward to a good night of fights in Detroit.

Here's a few images I took the last time I was there.

Detroit Brawl

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.
