At Hustle Boss, we have been fortunate to have covered several boxing-related events over the years, in and out of the ring, including various prospects from all walks of life. As the years go past, the photos become something like a “lost file” if you will, as they are somewhat forgotten, but still not technically deleted.

I took it upon myself recently to begin sifting through some of my personal photos that I have shot, and it’s been a trip down memory lane. To see the progression made by some of the people featured has also been inspiring.

There can be more to meets the eye when you really get to know Marcus Willis.

I’ve been familiar with Willis’ career for several years now and have even crossed paths with him in the past down in Florida, while also being present for one of his biggest victories, when he beat James De La Rosa in Las Vegas in April of 2013.

It’s about that time again for Lydell Rhodes.

Rhodes (27-3-1, 13 KO’s) returns to the ring this weekend against former junior lightweight champion champion Jason Sosa (22-3-4, 15 KO’s) in the main event of an ESPN + card from the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia. Rhodes vs. Sosa was originally set as the co-feature bout, but the match has since taken center stage after Carl Frampton had to withdraw from his scheduled matchup vs. Emmanuel Dominguez after a freak injury.
