First, thanks for posting something different. I don't think I've seen boxing pictures before.

Both shots capture a good moment and I love the expressions.

Picture 1 - my favorite of the two. The only issue is the head being cropped off.

Picture 2 - the ropes make it a bust as does the DOF - my attention keeps getting drawn to the punch thrower's back since it is also in focus. Might be able to adjust this by a different crop so the emphasis is shifted towards the punch and the facial expression of the 'victim'

Problem is, having never shot boxing I don't know what advice to give since both issues are situational (i.e. the ropes are in the way). Probably not much you can do on that front.

Thanks again for a different sport and keep posting!

Who, man, that's a new genre!

Nice shots, I hope the kids weren't hurt!

I think the kids were less harmed than I was. I was pretty nervous just watching.

It was my first attempt to photograph boxing. Fortunately, I was allowed quite a bit of leeway in getting right up to the ring, although I was not able to move from one spot. I just wanted to capture the moment.
