Boxing photos from Chia Messina

By Jason Moriber • Jun 9th, 2009 • Category: Eye Candy

Boxing is a mystery to me, a violent game of strategy and pain that honors a tradition of rules, fellowship, and personalities. I can make lists of favorite boxers; Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, Boom Boom Mancini, Marvin Haggler, Larry Holmes, Thomas Hearns. Beyond the violence, there were deeper stories about risks, strategy, and survival.

When I learned of photographer Chia Messina’s history with boxing I asked if I could present some of her images here. It’s the second portfolio in a row of boxing images, totally unintentional. Sometimes you just roll with the punches.

  1. Having known Chia for almost 20 years, I’ve always appreciated her headshot photography. Nice to see boxing as well.
