N.M. boxing history seminar

The Office of the State Historian in New Mexico will be hosting a presentation given by Fightnews writer & photographer Chris Cozzone on the topic of the History of New Mexico Boxing, Monday, June 8, at 3 p.m. The seminar is free to the public and will take place in Albuquerque at UNM’s Center of Southwest Research (Willard Room) at Zimmerman Library. Cozzone will give an overview of the 140-year legacy of boxing in New Mexico, touching on such subjects as bareknuckle fights, early bouts in the Wild West, illegal boxing before statehood, the 1912 World Heavyweight Championship held in Las Vegas and the dozens of top fighters through 14 decades who paved the way for Danny Romero, Johnny Tapia and Holly Holm.

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
