The Fobbing Fighters

For her regular BYGONES feature, Margaret Mills took us back today on a journey to Fobbing on the 24th November 1862, the site of the last ever recorded heavy weight bare knuckle prize fight.


The fight was between Tom King and Jem Mace and went for a full 20 rounds!

Listen here for Margaret’s description of this event: –
