BTS: Reshat Mati vs Norfleet Stitts - Photos by Melina Pizano/Matchroom Boxing-10/12/19

October 13, 2019

When boxers are easy to work with, like Reshat Mati, it makes the world of a difference for everyone behind the scenes on fight night. Mati's bout was scheduled for early on, but due to unforeseen circumstances it got moved to a swing bout so he didn't go on until after the main event. As frustrating as that could be for any boxer and their team, Mati stayed smiling from the dressing rooms to the ring. Since he went on last I was finally able to photograph one of his fights. He didn't disappoint.


Photos taken on Saturday, October 12, 2019 at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois.
