LEBA Archive

A key part of our aim in creating this website is to catalogue and give context to photographs, documents and other archival objects that help to represent London's rich boxing heritage. If an item relates to an individual featured in the East End Boxing Lives project, it can also be found in that part of the site. But we continue to collect and upload a much wider range of images as we build an extensive database of London boxing artefacts.

The entire database can be searched from this page. Enjoy exploring our archive, and if you have any images or memorabilia you would like to contribute we would be very pleased to hear from you.
