Last night, there was some fantastic action at the Staples Center in the Showtime Championship Boxing ring but I spent most of my time backstage, watching fighters as they prepared mentally for their impending battles. I also edited Tom Casino’s wonderfully visceral action shots and we put together a gallery for you at SHO Sports. [...]
I took a quick trip up to San Jose last week to steal some stills while Showtime Sports shot their promos and features for the upcoming Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix finals on May 19th AND the rubber match between lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez and Josh Thomson. The short trip was lovely and I was able [...]
Action-packed night here in St. Louis for Strikeforce in support of Alistair Overeem’s first heavyweight title defense. I wanted to share my favorites from Strikeforce with y’all before I shove everything I’ve been dragging around for two weeks into my luggage and catch my flight home.

Andre Ward, Carl Froch, Arthur Abraham, Jermaine Taylor, Mikkel Kessler and Andre Dirrell came to New York City that same week I was there for the Gina [...]

Esther is taking photos in St. Louis this week for Strikeforce’s Lawler vs Shields event on June 6th on Showtime.
