NEW – 110 Years of Boxing News – £9.99
110 Years of Boxing News is your open invitation into the greatest archives in the history of combat sports.
The multi-award-winning Boxing News team have painstakingly picked out the finest features and scoured our files for the best photographs. Alongside some classic interviews and sumptuous imagery, you will find brand new features to guide you through an ever-changing boxing landscape.
The best fighters from each decade are ranked against each other, the most compelling stories are told, and long-forgotten facts unearthed (Did you hear the one about the boxer with no hands, for example?)
Sam Langford had some things he wanted to get off his chest in 1911, the Kray twins have just one rule as they embark on their boxing careers in 1951, and we’re not sure what to make of a certain Cassius Clay when he talks to us in 1961. There are profiles on fighters like Harry Greb, Joe Louis and Sugar Ray Leonard, and editors of the past reveal exactly what it’s like to sit in the Boxing News hotseat.
We’re confident you will adore this epic trip through the Boxing News years as much as we enjoyed putting it together

With help from our 110-year archives and some of the industry’s most respected experts, we attempt to rate the best fights there has ever been.

There are fights from every era, including the current one, to bring an exhaustive account of history’s best battles.

FIRST EVER ISSUE – £5.99
YOUR chance to own a replica edition of the very first Boxing News – the oldest boxing magazine in the world – which was first available on September 11, 1909. Entitled Boxing (It would be 30 years before ‘News’ was added), this fascinating 24-page document serves as one of the finest pieces of boxing history available.
The mission statement is telling and highlights a philosophy that remains to this day: “Boxing is not offered to its public with an apology,” wrote editor John Murray. “We claim it is wanted, and wanted badly.
“It will stand for good, clean sport. Its success or failure is in the hands of those who believe in sport of that character. Our energies will be devoted to giving the best paper that time, thought and money can devise. It’s up to you, reader, to ‘help a good thing along’.”
Within the 24 pages are reports and opinion from the time, including the impending comeback of James J. Jeffries to challenge Jack Johnson where we criticise the racism that was already tainting the African American’s reign as world heavyweight champion.
You also will find cartoons and photographs, alongside fascinating adverts of the time, and a testimony from former world heavyweight king, James J. Corbett, who wrote: “I have just been handed an advance copy of Boxing and I must say I am delighted with it. I must, however, disagree with that part of the Editorial Ideas in which you say that this first issue is not as good as future ones will be. If they are to be better than this, then – gee whiz! – they will be good.”
Don’t miss out on your chance to own a very special piece of boxing history.
