I am going to shoot a Golden Gloves even for a friend...gonna do it with film. What film do you recommend. I was there Saturday for a fight and it is a pretty well lit arena. Also they do not allow flash.

Thanks

400 is plenty for those venues, usually...
If you want color, any cheap Fuji 400 does a great job.

I really doubt it. I've shot in arenas and 1600 is usually pushing the limits for sports. But anyway, that's why trix is a good choice to take. It's incredibly flexible.

Yeah, you will want to keep the shutter speed quite high, so you can get those 'punched-in-the-face-with-drops-of-spit-flying-out' kind of shots.

The OP stated the venue is well lit. In such conditions, I've experienced f2 to F2.8 @ 1/250 with ISO 400 film by ringside.

Go for tri-x. If the lighting is worse than excepted, you can push it to 1600 in diafine if you need to.
