Been a few times in a corner of a boxing ring (or Sanda, for the matter), and it's just as you show it mate. The fighter's mental preparation, the pre fight excitement, the faces in the crowd... Awesome photo! :clap:

I've never boxed, but I would imagine that so much if it is mental.

Totally mate, your mental state and preparation before the fight can make you either win or loose it. That's why this photo is so impressive to me, because it captures that inner state the fighter adopts after a bout. :nod:

Very good picture. You can feel his concentration.

If everything is goign well I'll be preparing a report for the newspaper I work for about Baletudo.
Do you know what it is? A friend that does it just explained me and aparently has got a very bad fame.
Now that I'm in a news paper working maybe I can clean the name of this sport and make my friend apear on the news paper.

Personaly I don't like boxing... to many hits on the head can't be good for the brain...

Good. I like the story and exposure, though composition could be better.
With best regards,

I just thought it was funny that you would say something like, "... composition could be better." and leave it at that, especially because this frame is exactly what I wanted from the scene. I feel any looser or tighter and the mood would have been totally different.
