Boxers Before & After They Step Out Of The Ring

The world of professional boxing is a brutal and bloody landscape - victors are showered with more wealth than they ever thought possible and hailed as heroes, losers are left physically and mentally broken forgotten by time and history.

Howard Schatz is an ophthalmologist, which is an area of medicine that focuses around physiology of the eye - a prime target in any boxing match. Cause your opponents eye socket to swell, impairing their vision and they'll struggle to land their punches. It's a gruesome tactic will known and often used by experienced fighters.

One day, Howard opted to combined his knowledge of ophthalmology and love of photography, the end result is his book At the Fights: Inside the World of Professional Boxing . It's a flawless body of work that took him 6 years to produce. During that time he immersed himself within the boxing family, interviewing some of its biggest stars, along with the seemingly endless array of managers, promoters and trainers that make up one of the world's oldest and most violent sports.

His striking images which showcases boxes before and after they step out of the ring are both a tribute and warning to all who venture into the squared circle. Win or lose, will never be the same afterwards.
