I'm starting to feel a bit nostalgic reading this thread. 15 round fights, fighters getting introduced, nobbins, proper shorts. Maybe I'm getting old.
And may i add AL, although not strictly limited to, more often than not it was a near bottom of the card fight.

Regular fights.

For a fan like me, I'd go to every fight near me, but the prices are steap and there is hardly any fights on. We have a Lee McAllister fight the end of this month that i can't make.

I have to make do with going to amateur fights.

I think sometimes now it's all showbiz. Apart from when the fighters are actually doing their thing.

Thanks for the info I just turned 20 on Sunday, so my earliest boxing memory is probably The Bite Fight.

The Old bells at Madison Square Garden.

Best-sounding bells I've heard, from the high pitched bell to the loud gong which would continue to sound for almost a minute after it was rung.

Both of which can be heard here:

In Oz it was called a "Shower" & I too lament it's slow passing. & the "I've come to fight" trunks as well (Ala Mike Tyson). These things they wear today were once called "Bombay bloomers" & you wouldn't wear them to the bathroom.

Down here, beer is still at a managable price where most fights are conducted at Clubs.
Upmarket shows have ringside "Tables". circular, & 10 seats each.
The price ranges from about (Basic) $120 to $250
You get (basic) 3 course meal & free wine & beer.
Top shelf is aimed at Corporate level with the same concessions but a bit more exclusive plus a number of VIP advantages.

It's hardly nostalgic but it works well.

Tyson ring attire was very old school, with the plain balck trunks and the boots from the first half of the century, hyou could tell he was a fan of the old fighters becuase of that.
