GETTING READY TO FIGHT


A photo essay by John Mackintosh, Mackintosh Photography

WORCESTER — In his locker room at the Worcester Centrum, boxer Peter McNeeley prepares for his second professional fight. Manager/trainer/cornerman Vinnie Vecchione assists McNeeley as the young heavyweight wraps his hands, puts on the gloves, and gets himself warmed up for the bout. Most of all, he waits to be called to the ring. Waiting to fight, in many ways, is the hardest part of the night.
