In martial arts, there are rarely draws. When two fighters of a similar skill level face each other, psyche plays a significant role in the duel. This is particularly so in the last seconds of the fight. The slightest error can confound weeks of preparation and training. In the ring, the one who has the stronger will wins.

Once the fight ends, only sweat and blood are left behind. The fighter takes all the excitement with him. It’s a rough sport and the match does not end with one hit. Out of the ring, the winner is as tired as his rival. Both bodies show signs of the struggle. It is impossible to know who has won or who has lost just by looking at their faces.
