When Boxing Was Boxing - A Nostalgic Look at a Century of Boxing
When Boxing Was Boxing is a photographic celebration of the sport's heyday. It's a beautifully illustrated tribute to an age when the noble art was a little more dignified, and a little less preoccupied with money and the politics of sport. It's about a time when there weren't quite so many governing bodies, nor multiple world 'champions' viewed only by tiny audiences on pay-per-view channels; a time when boxing was once regarded as the pinnacle of professional sporting endeavor, and not just a lucrative arm of the leisure and entertainment business. With special features on the sport's grassroots, its particular customs, culture and curiosities, and its more lighthearted moments, this is an affectionate and wonderfully nostalgic look at a time when boxing really was boxing.
