the local paper asked me to cover a local amateur boxing night, I ended up getting a double page spread published.
Here are a few of the photos, all with K3 and DA*16-50mm

Well captured, especially anticipating the KO, a good performance from the K3 as well

Absolutely fabulous.....!! surprised the K3 could focus quickly enough...! Just love 4, 10 and 13. But they all deserve applause.. So very well done.

Really good those. I don't see how you could have got better images from using Canikon alternatives.

Boxing is a very fast sport, i'd say your combo handled it very well. As Chris said above, your anticipation of the action is spot on.

Great action, good technique - a very fine example of action photography using non-Canon/Nikon gear.

Really well done.
Must have been nice to get a chance to be so close to the action, and great exposure too
Pun intended
I know what i like, If not always why.
