Steven Wilcox - WBA-NABA Super Lightweight Title Fight

Three Lions Promotions put on another great pro boxing event in Hamilton, Ontario. Steven "The Piranha" Wilcox defended his WBA-NABA Super Lightweight belt. Despite having to fight the last 4 rounds with only one hand, Steven was never in any trouble during the fight and dropped his opponent twice in the 6th round. A great night of fights overall.

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.

Boxing in the GTA

United Promotions Boxing put on another show at the Hershey Centre Saturday night. I got to see lots of friends there including two of them facing off in the ring and fighting to a draw. It was a good night of fights which saw Ryan Young capture the Canadian Super Welterweight Championship. Photographing ringside is really great and is the best "seat" in the house. I tried a couple of different lenses and settings on Saturday and really enjoyed the results.
