Go to filter > blur > gaussian blur > radius 10. Next, add a layer mask and paint with a soft rounded brush like i marked for you, then set the blending mode to overlay and the opacity to 80%.

Make a selection around the filament of the light bulb, then right click on the selection and go to layer via copy (call the new layer filament). Now double click on the new layer for styles and go to gradient overlay >blend mode overlay and use a gradient like i did. Next outer glow, use my gradient and the other settings.

Add a new layer on top of the background and call it lights. Using Polygonal lasso tool add multiple selections ( if you need another selection when you aready have one just hold SHIFT and when you see a „+”, click to add a new one). Fill the selection with this color #ffff8e then go to gaussian blur and at set the radius to 20. Next set the opacity to 30% and the blending mode to hard light.

Now select all the layers without the boxer with his shadow and without the filament. Duplicate this layers (right click > duplicate) and merge them (right click > merge layers). Rename the layer „zoom blur” and go to filter > blur > radial blur and use my settings. The final step here is to add a layer mask then fill it with a white to black radial gradient.

Add a new layer on top of everything else and call it „film grain”. Fill the layer with this color #009371 then go to Filter > artistic >film grain (grain 10, highlight area 0, intensity 5). Set the blending mode to lighten and the opacity to 30%.
