One of the oldest combat sports boxing dates back to the ancientcivilizations. Popular in 18th century Britain as the outlawedbare-knuckle prizefight, it was not until the introduction of theMarquess of Queensbury rules in 1867 that the sport gainedstructure and legitimacy. Charting the changing face of amateur andprofessional boxing over one hundred years, the photographs in thisbook give readers a flavour of the skill, brutality and grace ofthe sport, celebrating the heroes and anti heroes of the ring, thetriumphs, controversies and tragedies of a sport that pits managainst man or, in the modern era, woman against woman, with onlytheir fists as weapons and agility their defense.
