Fightnews photogs win Barneys

Three Fightnews photographers were winners of the BWAA’s annual contest. Marty Rosengarten won first place in the feature category for his shot of Deandre Latimore leaping for joy after knocking out Sechew Powell. Chris Cozzone came in second with a corner shot of Oscar De La Hoya taken the round before his retirement to Manny Pacquiao. Ed Mulholland was third, with a photo of Gary Stark’s battered face after winning a decision over Andres Ledesma.

In the action category, Top Rank photo veteran Chris Farina won top honors for a shot of Manny Pacquiao flooring Juan Manuel Marquez. Edward Lea of The Press of Atlantic City came in second and Ray Bailey, third.

The winners will be honored at the 84th annual BWAA Awards Dinner on June 12 at The Capitale in New York City. Manny Pacquiao and Joe Calzaghe will be in attendance. For more information on the annual dinner, go to www.bwaa.org.

    For 18 years, Fightnews.com® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
