    What a fabulous capture, Michelle. I love the black and white tones and the intensity in his face. That all with the motion of the ball makes up one fantastic capture.

I love boxing and you have quite a champ here. The rawness of the photo and the black and white makes for some amazing and beautiful journal photo work. Amazing the way you capture people Michelle. Outstanding.

Thanks everyone! Update: Bernard Hopkins, at 48 yrs of age, regained the World Championship Saturday night to break his own record to become the oldest man to win a major boxing title, scoring a unanimous decision victory over Tavoris Cloud to secure the IBF light heavyweight championship.

Absolutely great capture, Michelle! Fantastic work! He is an enigma wrapped inside a riddle given that he can still win (and talk) after fighting for so long.
