Default Noriko Kariya, Sister of NHL'er Paul Kariya fight photos

Instead of sharing the best shots from the entire fight card, I figured I'd give a look at one bout from the night. I've gotten emails in the past to see quality of work from a single bout as opposed over the course of a night (where it's much easier to but together a gallery of keepers). I chose this fight because I had done a workout shoot with Noriko and wanted to follow-up with a fight piece. The main photo was supposed to run in the NY Times today, but havent verified it, may be held until tomorrow.

Shots from last night's fight between Noriko Kariya and Elisha Olivas. Kariya, of Toronto, is the sister of NHL'ers Paul & Steve Kariya. She is obviously the fighter of the family (Paul has won the Lady Byng Trophy for gentlemanly play) and is growing quite a local following and improving with each outing. Enjoy, critiques and comments welcome as always.

Good series Ed. What I like about these is the way you've displayed the intensity of womens boxing. It's come a long way from the slapping type, hit and miss punching we were used to seeing in the womens events a few years ago. You've done justice to the womens side of the sport here as the images comes across with a very serious and professional conotation to them. Nicely done sir...

I agree with Hauff ... I've watched women fight where they hit twice and hugged the rest of each round the whole match and others where there was talent, conditioning and toughness. These are clearly the latter and show the mental toughness women now show. Excellent captures, composition, white balance, sharpness and angles ... you really keep the bar high for the rest of us.
