The Friday Night Throwdowns were a series of illegal boxing matches that took place in Manhattan in the winter of 2010-2011. They were nicknamed the 'male model boxing' ring because numerous high profile male models were known to participate. 

These photographs were taken at the last two matches in late 2011, and early 2011. Friday Night Throwdown was subsequently shut down by the police, indefinitely.  

A series of these photographs was published in New York Magazine's winter fashion issue, and they were also turned into a book entitled "KISSER". To see the KISSER page, click here.
