New series of articles for Boxing Monthly begins today

I'm delighted to announce that I'll be writing a new series of articles for the Boxing Monthly website on the theme of 'fight of the century'.

This 12-part series will follow the entire history of the sport from the 18th century to the modern day, examining 12 iconic contests which were labelled, or deserved to be labelled, as 'the fight of the century'. Each article will be based on extensive archival research - which in some cases may challenge the conventional orthodoxies in the boxing history books about the fights concerned. The series begins today with a look at Jack Broughton v Jack Slack from 1750.
