You know, I just can't walk past a mirror without taking a self portrait.

Boxing / KO'd - 'Stopped By The Ref, No Decision Needed'

Last Thursday at the Florentine Gardens, Bash Boxing scheduled a 10 bout fight card. I was there primarily for  Vyacheslav Shabransky's (Cruiser Weight) debut, consequently I only shot the first 5 bouts. Of those first five bouts only one went beyond the first round. Hence the title - 'Stopped by the Ref, no decision needed.
Here are photos of those 4 knockouts.







Although Shabransky's opponent was taken out in a stretcher, he managed to be alert enough to flick someone off! I wonder whom.
