Description

Lonsdale's Belt is the story of one of the world's most prestigious sporting prizes. First awarded in 1909, the belt is still as cherished a trophy as the FA Cup, the Ashes or the Calcutta Cup. This is an absorbing story of courage and endeavour by boxers; forgotten heroes and men whose names will feature in any British boxing Hall of Fame.
