1st Edition reviews: "This treasure is destined for the boxing reference Hall of Fame. A masterful entry." - Don Cogswell, President of the International Boxing Research Organization (IBRO). "The word 'magnificent' really doesn't do justice in trying to describe boxing historian Barry Hugman's epic series" - Mike Silver, The Ring magazine. "...a truly incredible body of work..." - Boxing News. This epic series is the result of more than 30 years of research by world renowned boxing historian Barry J. Hugman, who has scoured libraries, newspapers and relevant institutions across several countries to pull together the most complete history of world championship boxing. From the 1870s to December 2018, all newly discovered and known world championship bouts have been chronologically listed, together with the result and brief fight summary and, where known, the venues, scorecards and referees are provided too. It's a story of amazing fights, questionable decisions, riots, police intervention, scandals, and bravery, featuring countless legends of the ring. This volume focusses on the Featherweight, Junior Lightweight, Lightweight, Junior Welterweight and Welterweight divisions.
