​The Definitive History of World Championship Boxing is an astonishing 4-volume series of books, which together, combine in excess of an incredible one-and-a-quarter million words and presents the most comprehensive history of world championship boxing ever published!

 The series are:


Volume 1 – Mini Flyweight to Bantamweight

Volume 2 – Junior Featherweight to Lightweight

Volume 3 – Junior Welterweight to Middleweight

Volume 4 – Super Middleweight to Heavyweight


This epic series is the result of more than 30 years of research by world renowned boxing historian Barry J. Hugman, who has scoured libraries, newspapers and relevant institutions across several countries to pull together the most complete history of world championship boxing. Invaluable assistance on early British material has been provided by Harold Alderman MBE. From the 1870s to October 2016 all newly discovered and known world championship bouts have been chronologically listed, together with the result and brief fight summary and, where known, the venues, scorecards and referees are provided too. It’s a story of amazing fights, questionable decisions, riots, police intervention, scandals, and bravery, featuring countless legends of the ring.
