Fight Poster Design for PFC

I’m working my eleventh show with Jamie Champion’s Prospect Fighting Championships. In addition to shooting the fights I’m photographing the promo pictures. I also did the poster designs for this event. Great to work with the PFC team again.

Main Event

Not every fighter appearing on the posters will have a fight, we over shoot as injuries leading up to the fight often happen.

Announcing the event.

Boxing images from United Promotions Boxing in Toronto

I went to Mississauga on Friday night for the United Promotions Boxing show. There were some entertaining fights on the card that say Josh O'Reilly move to 9-0 after crushing his opponent's body with a devastating left. Always a good time to get ringside for some fights in Toronto.

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.

Warriors Boxing Show with Boxing Ontario

Earlier this month amateur boxing returned to London with the first show of 2016. I had to be there and a lot of other people turned out as well. It was the pre-Christmas boxing event in London. Warriors Boxing hosted the Boxing Ontario event. 11 competitive fights that night on the card. One extra cool thing was Donovan "Razor" Ruddock was cornering his son in the second fight of the evening. It was a lot of fun getting back to a local club for a show. Rob Caron is a great guy if you're looking to train in boxing in London, Ontario. Politics aside in Ontario's amateur boxing world, both organizations do a fantastic job of matchmaking. The fights are competitive and safe. A couple of shout outs, one to Julia for arranging the round card girls who looked great wearing Elizabeth Noel and to Miguel Estrada on his win. I'm looking forward to more boxing events in London in 2017.
