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.
