First topic message reminder :

I should imagine I'm not the only one who loves browsing fight photos, new and old, and it dawned on me that some might like to share their favourites here and build up an ' image library.' If it catches on, we could even ask the admins whether or not it could become a ' sticky ' or even a sub - forum.

Let's see how it plays out.

Here are just a couple of my favourites :

Any more for any more ?

That's a photo from 'Four Kings', caption 'I had to show him how to hold his hands to pose. He was completely green'.

Nice one Scott, i've never seen a picture of him that young before.

I love this one, Galveston.

It should be azania's avatar. Johnson was 67 but still looked in better shape than most of today's heavies.

Johnson vs Willard. The thing that always amazes me is that everyone wears a hat in these photos.

Jake La Motta versus Laurent Dauthuille, 1950. One of the most wonderful fights of all time, and a great picture to boot.

Great topic and I haven't had chance to read/view them all but I've been trying to get hold of one from Lewis Rahman 2 for ages (it was in the Sun), the KO shot still from the camara above the ring, Lewis over Rahman, Rahman in crucifix pose, head directly in the O of Don and directly below the crown on the logo of don king promotions classic!
