On Saturday , December 3rd 2016 Joey Hill and myself had the honor to photograph and provide videos for the Boxing without frontiers -"Two Nations- One Dream Program". This program headed up by the WBC (World Boxing Council) has had young amateur boxers (ages 9-12 and 13-17) in Mexico City, Acapulco and Chicago attending training sessions and elimination tournaments over the past three months. The tournament on December 3rd at Cicero Stadium was the Chicago elimination 18 matches to choose which of our fine young talented boxers will represent the Chicago during the finals in Mexico in early 2017.
Below the cover photo of our Chicago team is a slideshow of some of my favorite images of the night in gray-scale captured on a great night for all involved in a Great Program. PLEASE NOTE THE SLIDESHOW IS NOT THE COMPLETE PHOTO GALLERY POSTING OF THE NIGHT. To see the complete photo gallery locate the link below the slideshow.
