Ted ‘Kid’ Lewis and Nigel Benn feature in this week’s EBA news
Simon Euan-Smith EBA correspondent

LONDON’S East End has always had a great boxing tradition, which lives on today via the iconic York Hall, Bethnal Green. From 1911 to 1930, Whitechapel’s Premierland enjoyed a similar reputation, and the famous venue is the subject of a comprehensive new book, Premierland, by Essex EBA Secretary Raymond Lee. Included are the traceable results of every show staged there (the author notes that Boxing [forerunner of BN] and The Sporting Life did not always publish full results), an in-depth overview by noted author Bob Lonkhurst and loads of photos and reproductions of handbills. There’s also a reproduction of a BN piece from 1969. How many people thought the recent set-to between YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul set a worrying new trend?

Both were woefully unfit, both quickly abandoned any pretence of sticking to the rules, and the whole thing ended in chaos.
