Price v Sexton – Aintree Show 19 May 2012

As always, it was a great experience to be behind the scenes at the latest big boxing show on Saturday with David Price v  Sam Sexton top of the bill – as seen on Sky Sports One. What makes it particularly interesting for me is gaining access behind the scenes, documenting the tension as the boxers and their teams make last minute preparations and wait for their call to the ring. I’m always struck by the dedication of the boxers and the huge amount of physical and mental strength required for the sport. Hopefully I’ve captured some of the atmosphere in the boxing photographs, to help do them justice.  I’ll be posting more images shortly but, in the meantime, you can see some of my previous visits to  boxing shows here.
