What a shame that venue would never be used to stage a Wills-Dempsey showdown.

Apparently George Taylor bought Figgs Amphitheatre located here

Figg's Amphitheatre or Great House was the prototype of several other schools of pugilism that were developed in this area of London.

This Great House stood at the corner of Castle Street and Marylebone Fields and just north of Figg's house at the Sign of the City of Oxford in Oxford Road. These streets still exist although they are now known as Eastcastle Street, Wells Street and Oxford Street.

Thank you.

Taylor ceratainly did buy Figgs' Amphitheatre but ended selling up because he was unable to compete with the successful one ran by Broughton.
