Faroe Fight Night (Pictures)

A calm before the storm, yet a tension could be felt.
For four days, fighters and trainers slept, trained and lived in a makeshift hotel. Before the event, fighters found time to play a round of football, creating a jovial atmosphere.
The officials presiding over the event were given a warm welcome by Tórshavn boxing.
The U-15 teams showed a great deal of intensity.
And a commitment to a sport that isn’t bloodless.
The night was a debut for the Faroe Islands. The crowd chanted, showing support for their favored fighters.

Even when bloodied, fighters revelled in their moments of glory.

And his opponent.
Victory was his, and every bruise, cut and lump a medal of its own.
