The Baby Boxing Championships of 1942

Share this:

IN 1942, fights fans surrounded the ring to see the toddlers slugs it out. ┬áIf the Hun made land, Dads’ Army in Annapolis, Maryland, would need reinforcements. The Baby Boxers will fight the bitter end – or nap time, at least.

First on the card, Basher Bill and Tornado Tim, two 3-year-olds.

Tim takes one in the eye. Boy, that sure smarts. Seconds out for round two and the Tornado has lost his legs and his moniker – he’s now the “Midget”. Finally, he’s the “Quitter”, crawling back to his corner like a sorry drunkard to his past-caring wife.

The poor wretch.
