Boxing is something that I was fairly unfamiliar with before Thursday night, when I went to cover the World Boxing Union Lightweight Championship at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City.

One of my favorite things about being a photojournalist is going places that I would probably not go otherwise.  Experiencing new things like the culture of boxing keeps my life interesting.
