Abstract:

This four-part series captures all the excitement of heavyweight championship fight night, negotiating 300 years of history from the origins of the fight game in the bare-knuckle era, when it wasn't uncommon for fighters to gouge and kick their opponents. Boxing was civilised and legitimised in the late 19th Century as a spectator sport, moving from semi-lawless bareknuckle contests to the codified and regulated multi-million dollar events of today. From John L. Sullivan's incredible 75-round title fight with Jake Kilrain in 1889 to Mike Tyson's defeat by Lennox Lewis in 2002, this is the story of how boxing's bad boys remain its greatest folk heroes.
