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
  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages 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.

Amazing Spider-Man deluxe book. My grandson is going to love it. His photo looks great on the book. Thankyou.

Roger Bird Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 20 August

Book well presented

Book well presented, but would have been better if personalised first page had name and greeting on the page instead of a stick on label. Paper used was of average weight and quality. Fast delivery though.

David Thomas Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 20 August

Funny book, but not full size!

Funny book, looks just like a Haynes manual BUT it is probably half the size so bear that in mind. I had the box just to make it a bit more special.

Charlotte R Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 20 August

Customer service was excellent and friendly

Customer service was excellent, I received a quick friendly response to my query as I was worried that I would not receive the delivery in time for my friends baby shower, so they upgraded my delivery to priority. I received the book on time and my friends daughter loved her 'Big Sisters are Great' personalised book, she loved finding her name on the pages!

Rebecca Denham Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 19 August

The book is amazing and worth every…

The book is amazing and worth every penny spent. The fact that it’s personalised to the person it’s for, is a bonus. And makes this book so unique. Can’t wait for my little cousin to receive it. I know she will love the stories in it as much as I did when I was younger.
