: Amateur Boxing

A.B.A. v. I.S.B.A.
Commentary by Raymond Glendenning, with inter-round summaries by W. Barrington Dalby, on some of the bouts between Service and Civilian Champions at the Charity Tournament in aid of the Soldiers'. Sailors', and Airmen's Families Association
From the Royal Albert Hall. London
(See foot of page)

BOXING AT 7.30
Amateur Boxing Association versus Imperial Services Boxing Association AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL
The match between the Amateur Boxing Association team and that of the Imperial Services Boxing Association should undoubtedly provide one of the richest fight feasts of the year. In fact, it is doubtful whether the Royal Albert Hall will accommodate all the amateur boxing enthusiasts who will want to see this tournament, representing as it does the cream of the Services and civilian amateur boxing talent in the country. On paper the match looks like being a particularly close affair, with perhaps a very slight advantage in favour of the Services' side. In the Heavyweight event the Services' representative is Leading Aircraftman Mark Hart - the 1944 A.B.A. Champion - and as he has already beaten his civilian opponent. G. W. Hill, of the West Ham Boxing Club, he should stand a good chance of repeating his previous performance.

The Services have also got another form winner in Sergeant Ernest Shackelton. who should be able to repeat his last year's A.B.A. Championship win over George Page, of Stone's Boxing Club, in one of the two Cruiser-weight bouts.
Personally, I am looking forward to the Lightweight contest between the A.B.A. champion, W. Thompson, and Private Stan Davis. The pair have met on three occasions Thompson winning twice and Davis once. and I fully expect this bout to be one of the most exciting of the evening. Altogether it promises to be a grand evening's boxing. (W. Barrington Dalby)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
