wish they’d filmed more of the fights of this era
I had absolutely no idea boxing got this bloody.
Every single time I see some photo of the early 1900’s all I can think is "Man, aren’t you hot walking around in a suit all day, every day." I can’t imagine what catching a ballgame in July must’ve felt like.
canvas so washed out it looks like a blank white background.
Holy crap that fight must have been brutal.
Gonna name my new crust punk band the Fighting Dicks.
The facial expressions of the audience are telling. Some look horrified.
Thinner, unweighted gloves right?
Little known fact: this fight inspired the movie “Carrie”
Horse shoes in the gloves? This looks worse than a bare knuckle fight.
Wow they really had a go at each other, didn’t they?
Maybe those “Back in my day” grandpa’s are telling the truth about how hard they had it…
It’s crazy to me how everyone dressed so much nicer back then while at the same time being more barbaric.
