UBL 17 Highlights

Boxing Photographs, Leicestershire, Midlands

What an incredible night of unlicensed fighting.  A large group of hardened men avoid going completely underground to fight on the shows put on by Gypsy Jerry Gorman and Elvis Hopkins who runs Kings Gym in Leicester.

The shows are that good, there'll be no time wasted on idle chat.

Watch this slideshow mother fucker...

Oh, and turn your volume up!

Tough hardened fighting men go to war against each other in an unlicensed night of brutal gloved boxing bouts. Jerry Gorman and Elvis Hopkins of Kings Gym in Leicester put on such a good show that only viewing it will tell you what it's about. So get on with it...

Gorman's Fight Club Documentary Film

A story about a hardened group of unlicenced fighters from the middle of England coming together for a ringed bout of gloved boxing.

This short documentary discovers a little about Jerry Gorman who runs the fight club and includes talks with some of the tough guys who step in to that ring.

If you're interested in going along to watch some of this fighting live then go to their Facebook page, and get in touch about purchasing some tickets.

The next fight night is on Saturday 4th March at The Athena in Leicester.

I'll be there again this year, with my camera doing the ring side photography.

Have a watch of the film and let me know what you think in the comments section below.

Finally, if you need or know any businesses that need professional photographs for their company website or marketing material, please direct towards my website via this link.

UBL 16 Top 10 Pictures So far...

I left The Athena on Saturday night with over 2000 pictures, after a very heavy session photographing the boxing matches for UBL (ran by Gorman & Hopkins Promotions).

I've been working on the post production all day, since waking up until now - 22:48.  I'm turning off the Mac now, my eyes are now 6x4".

Before I do, I felt there are some photographs created at the show that just cannot remain unseen.  They do belong to albums from each fight and can be found on my Paul Hands Photographer & Filmmaker Facebook page here.

However, to find these hidden works of art, you'd have to trawl through the fights, unless you've decided to visit this blog.  Here's my top ten photographs from the 7 fights that I've worked on today.  There will of course be another 11 fights to come over the next couple of weeks but for the time being, have a look at these and check out my explanations as to why I think they're in my top ten.

If you click on the pictures to enlarge them, hover the cursor over the picture and my explanation for why these have made my top ten will appear.
