Strong dramatic set- rather direct lighting helps conveys the shadowy, tense aura. Like it a lot (and best of luck to your mate in his chosen career).

Nice set! I like #4. Is that shot with natural light? Looks a bit too high ISO, but I really like it.
Many Thanks Yiannis, Spot on. It was natural lighting, Very low light area. So the ISO was cranked up to get the shutter fast enough to freeze the subject but show some sign of movement/motion on the speedball.

Very nice set- I would be tempted to crop away some of the space to the right of shot in No3
to exclude the punch bag and therefore placing the subject in a 3rd

Les ;)
Do you mean No4? I did think about it in edit, but I kinda liked the punchbag in the back ground. I would have cropped it exactly that way if it was dead space with no relevance to the shot. Thanks for taking the time to comment. Appreciated

Boxing myself i know how 99% of the gyms are so really impressed how clean and sharp these images are, really nice set they work well.

These are a really nice set. I think the images work well as I've seen a few boxing sets with staged punch shots that look fake and over done. The only thing I'd like to change a little is the highlights off the flash. You might not be able to control them fully, but I find they draw my eye e.g. his chest image 1 and the punch bag (that looks like it would tone down a little). Your choice though, maybe you prefer them to add to a more raw feel.
