by Alex Daley | 30 November 2018
Category: General Sport
Synopsis
The champs and challengers, unsung heroes and eccentrics, tragedies and bizarre little-known tales from the history of boxing are all here. This unique assortment of articles comes from the popular Boxing News "Yesterday's Heroes" column. In this compilation, Alex Daley has delved deep into the archives and interviewed ex-fighters to uncover some of boxing's most intriguing stories. British legends like Jimmy Wilde, Jim Driscoll, Ted Kid Lewis, Jock McAvoy, Benny Lynch, Freddie Mills, Randolph Turpin, John Conteh, and Terry Downes all feature, as do American greats like Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson, Harry Greb, Sonny Liston, and Jack Dempsey. Read about the world champion who was sold to a boxing booth by his father, the bareknuckle champ who became an MP, women's boxing pioneers, and the fighter who started a mutiny. Boxing Nostalgia takes you on a journey through British ring history, from the bareknuckle era to the late 20th century, with stories that are often sad, staggering, or downright bizarre.
