When Boxing Was Boxing

A Nostalgic Look at a Century of Boxing
September 2011
Adam Powley
Out Now

Boxing was once the noblest of sports, where the biggest fights captivated crowds across every continent, and the champions were real champions.

When Boxing Was Boxing is a photographic celebration of a time before pay per view and multiple world 'champions', to a time when boxers were the pinnacle of professional sporting endeavour.

Featuring a special focus on boxing's grassroots, cultures and curiosities, the book is an affectionate and nostalgic look back on a time when boxing really was boxing.
