Product Description

You'll love this because...

Via newspaper clippings from the past, you can relive the invigorating history of boxing. 

  • Personalise with any name and message
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • Tabloid size editions with colour pages available from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1910 to 2016

Relive the history of boxing through newspaper clippings in this personalised boxing history book. With coverage beginning in 1910, a time when Jack Johnson ruled the world, this exciting piece of boxing memorabilia takes you back over a century, revisiting all the greatest moments from Caesar’s Palace, Madison Square Garden, Wembley and many more, right up until the present day.

For the first half of the 20th century, professional boxing was all about the heavyweights. Jack Johnson, Jack Dempsey and Max Schmeling turned boxing into one of the most popular sports in the world, and became legends in the process. The first man to truly pave the way for the lighter competitors was Sugar Ray Robinson, who clocked up 173 wins as a welterweight and middleweight over a 25-year pro career, losing only one of his first 131 fights. That first man to beat him was Jake LaMotta, and man who would become as famous for his antics outside of the ring as in it.

In the 60s, the self-proclaimed “Greatest” Muhammad Ali became one of the most famous people on the planet following his legendary Rumble in the Jungle and Thrilla in Manila victories over George Foreman and Joe Frazier respectively. In the 80s, there was the “Fabulous Four”, as Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, Marvin Hagler and Thomas Hearns formed the greatest quartet of rivals ever assembled. And then came Tyson, the so-called “Baddest Man on the Planet”, whose legacy as the youngest heavyweight champion of all time was marred by jail time and an infamous ear-biting incident with Evander Holyfield, who would himself go on to become the only man to win the heavyweight title on four separate occasions.

In the 21st century, the UK has enjoyed something of a renaissance in boxing, with Ricky Hatton, Joe Calzaghe, David Haye and Anthony Joshua just some of the names managing to claw column inches away from superstars such as Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao and the Klitschko brothers.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.
