Happy Birthday To Hi-Tech

On this day in 1988 in southwestern Ukraine a future champion was born, arguably a true latter-day great, and that’s all the excuse we need to re-feature a stone cold masterpiece by gifted analyst and video auteur, Lee Wylie. It’s a boxing video unlike any other, inspired by a pugilist unlike any other. Or, as we have written before: ‘In what could be regarded as a “love letter” in video form to the ancient art of pugilism, Wylie takes inspiration from the extraordinary talent of the fighter they call “Hi-Tech” to create an epic portrait – with a vast, all-star cast – of boxing at its highest level, a veritable catalogue of the endless array of tactics, maneuvers and stratagems deployed by the true experts of prizefighting, from years past to the present day.” Happy Birthday, Hi-Tech.
