Product Description

This book traces the history of boxing on the fairground from its heyday in the first half of the twentieth century. This is a story of boxers and their families who travelled around the country taking challenges from all comers in their boxing booths. Some of the boxers were champions or ex-champions, although most were just ordinary boxers.

Many will recall legendary names from the world of boxing, such as Freddie Mills, Benny Lynch and Randolph Turpin, all who fought in the boxing booths at some time in their careers.

A Fair Fight gives a unique insight into a unique form of twentieth century entertainment.

Fully illustrated.

A MUST FOR ANY FAIRGROUND OR BOXING ENTHUSIAST!
