"My vision of this book is to share with people the passion captured within these photographs. I want to show people the boxing training environment and the stark and often shocking contrast in conditions that can be found. I believe that I now have the collection of images that can do just that. Not only do I hope that my work will increase awareness and understanding of different boxing environments, but I also intent for my images to engage with viewers emotions on a higher level, so they can see that boxing is far more than just a sport."
