jab, originally uploaded by efroymson.

A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to go to a Heavyweight championship fight. I was worried, since it seemed odd that there were still tickets available the day before the fight. A little research revealed the reason, Maskaev had beaten Rahman a number of years ago, but since then Rahman had performe well, and Maskaev not so well.

A lot of folks were expecting a quick Rahman victory. They were wrong on both counts.

This shot is from one of the middle rounds. Rahman had been jabbing at will it seemed, and Maskaev was starting to get some back. I seem to recall a moment at the end of the second or third round when Maskaev glared at Rahman. It was such a scary look I felt it from 50 feet away.
