Fighter / Trainer Bond by Matt Bottos

Currently unavailable for purchase

I probably spend more time watching people interact backstage than what I do watching the actual fights. This is one of my fav shots of the night. Aaron Goodson just moments before entering the ring where he had a very convincing win for the WKA Australian Title (1st round KO). Aaron is looking extremely focused and getting some support from his corner men. Off to the left of the shot is his trainer Joe Nader. Together they had worked long and hard to prepare for this fight. The bond between fighter & trainer is generally incredibly strong; I think Joe’s expression says it all.

    Such an incredible shot of amazing energy and tension- it is interesting for me that both men with down-turned gaze hold the most intensity here! Matt very best wishes for a great 2011 to you and your loved ones xxx
