Body Shot Boxing Club Sparring Day - Photos by Melina Pizano - 10/22/20

November 03, 2020

Thank you to Coach Rick Ramos, Jessica McCaskill, Summer Lynn, and Mia at Body Shot Boxing Club for the opportunity to capture this sparring session day. It was exciting to see Coach Ramos training not 1, not 2, but 3 female boxers all in one day.

On August 15, 2020, Jessica McCaskill became the undisputed women's welterweight champion. Summer Lynn (2-0) will be back in the ring in Chicago on Saturday, November 7, 2020.

Side note: For possibly the first time I chose to mix a set of photographs in both black & white and color. I prefer to keep photos as we see them, for the majority, in color. For this set I chose to make some black & white because, to me, they were more aesthetically pleasing that way.


Photos taken on Thursday, October 23, 2020 at Body Shot Boxing Club in Chicago, Illinois.
