Haney vs Prograis Fight Week - Photo by Melina Pizano/Matchroom - 12/09/23

December 10, 2023

This particular week what stood out most to me was the loving bond between Miyo Yoshida and her daughter, Mina. Mina was always close by from media day to fight night. On media day Miyo was asked to pose how she would if victorious on fight night. See images below of her media day victory pose as well as after her win on fight night as she returned to the dressing room with her daughter by her side. On media day I couldn't help but ask Miyo for a portrait of the two (one I also captured on fight night.) Similarities or before/after don't always happen, but when they do it means so much more.

While I wish I was able to have been ringside for Miyo's fight to capture her upset win, my focus (until main event) is covering behind the scenes. I highly recommend looking up Ed Mulholland's image of Miyo after her win that night. It's a beautiful image of Miyo and Mina emotionally embracing in the center of the ring.
