Photographer Luca Sage travels the world to find good stories. He's shot soccer in the Ivory Coast and street boxing in Ghana. There is a brutal beauty to his images of the latter. High in competitive spirit, and true to the sport's rules, the bouts take new meaning when viewed in concert with the environmental surroundings. This is grass roots fighting. This is a unique view of an athlete's grand journey.
