Face Plant…

Sergio Martinez of Oxnard, CA knocks out Paul Williams of Augusta, GA in the second round of Middleweight Championship Bout in Atlantic City.  This was a great fight – LOVE, LOVE, LOVE shooting boxing. HATE, HATE, HATE getting covered in blood, sweat and saliva. I submitted the top three images to the Associated Press. The top image was the actual punch that knocked out Williams. The very next frame was that center image – I had to zoom out wide in a split second in order to get both Williams falling and Martinez jubilating – I’m glad I didn’t have a tighter lens because then I would have missed the shot. This is the first time the shot below has seen the light of day… it was the very next image when Williams face planted into the mat.
