No Guard

"Jimmy Lange punches the mouthpiece out of the mouth of Mike Sawyer during their light heavyweights bout at EagleBank Arena on the campus of George Mason University on October 17, 2015 in Fairfax, Virginia."

Watching two humans punch one another during a boxing match has to be one of the most thrilling, yet, terrifying sports one can witness.

Being ringside always gets my adrenaline running. I always shoot way too much because of the blood pumping through my veins at intense rates. Not to mention, timing a punch is very challenging even with the best technology.

As always, I arrived early despite really only needing the main bout. Not only do the early matches help get a photographer into the rhythm before the big fight, you never know who on the fight card could go onto become the next great boxing sensation.

This moment was probably one of the most visually jarring that night, though another fighter currently is fighting for his life after an alleged illegal hit that had him getting an emergency surgery after his fight.

It's a dangerous sport and I commend all fighters for following their passion and chasing their dreams.
