Boxing news is the weekly newspaper of the UK’s favourite fighting sport. Fiercely independent, it guides fight fans through the complicated world of boxing with integrity and insight you won’t find anywhere else.
Originally published in 1909 as a supplement to Health & Strength, original editor John Murray convinced his print shop owner that the title would stand out from other wrestling and boxing mags. He argued that “Boxing will stand for good clean sport and it can only be successful if its adherents believe in it”.
The first issue contained no headlines or cover price, but a small number of pages were dedicated to a round-up of the sport’s major events of the previous week. The paper became more extensive in its content as time went on, and it switched to A3 size and a colour cover in March 1999. By this stage, it was Britain’s main trade magazine, and was the only boxing paper to have a dedicated column on the subject of professional fighting.
