Stacey Verbeek, of Maple Avenue Boxing Gym, Dallas provides On The Beak with fantastic photographs from the weigh-ins, from ringside and also behind-the-scenes. She captures the sweat, the blood and the knockdowns. Stacey can be reached at verbeek.otb@gmail.com.

Robert Delgado (robbie.onthebeak@live.com) of Los Angeles, Denzil Stone of Atlantic City, Ibrahim Harb from Birmingham and Tommy Barber (tommy_barber@yahoo.co.uk) of London are a part of the junior staff, conducting researching and reporting on news.
