Fighter portraits series -4

So today after a longer than necessary hiatus I decided to continue this series. This time around it features future boxing hall of famer Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez.

I captured this image when Sergio visited Puerto Rico for a media tour promoting his fight with Puertorican superstar Miguel Cotto. Martinez would eventually lose the fight and would retire a bit later.

Still his mark on the sport holding the WBO, WBC and Ring Magazine championships will secure him a spot as one of the sports greatest.

Fighter portraits series- 4

Continuing this portrait series here’s one of Ivan Calderon. He’s definetly a future hall of fame boxer and one of the best defensive fighters to come out of Puerto Rico.

This image for me is touching since it was taken during his first loss. Facing a younger, bigger and hungrier opponent all the while Calderon was entering the final stages of his career. He would retire a few fight later.
