When they’re after action, tension, and a bit of bloodshed, photographers have always known where to go—the boxing ring. Take a look at some knock-out vintage photos in and out of the ringside.
The sporting world has long been one of man’s favorite sources of action-packed photographs. In this genre, photos should not only show tension and activity, but also tell interesting stories in and out of the playing field. Boxing is perhaps among the favorites of sports photographers of all ages, levels, and eras—when there’s force, tactics, and blood involved, there must definitely be an interesting moment or two waiting to be photographed.
While the popular combat sport traces its roots in the ancient times, modern boxing—with rules to protect fighters—emerged around the 1740’s. Amendments to the rules eventually followed in the 1800’s. Soon, there were boxing tournaments here and there, and photographers that time, never wanting to miss all the action, began taking interest in documenting the bloody bouts.
