Port-au-Prince : Lutte Sauvage(Wrestling Match)

People sing and dance before a traditional wrestling match known as “lutte sauvage” in French and Creole, or “savage fight”, in Port-au-Prince

The fights are held during Holy Week because most people are on holiday

Anyone at the event can fight, where competitors do not wear protection and use only their bodies to compete. The only rules are not to injure the rival’s eyes, mouth or crotch area

People pray to win bets as many of the spectators gamble on the outcome of the contest

Frankel Filesmon, 19, celebrates his victory
