Want information about a particular fighter or event?

Philly Boxing holds a huge newspaper & clipping archive which is now available to the public for the very first time. Our resources include clippings about Philadelphia-related boxing topics from 1850 to the present. For a small research charge ($35), we will locate the information you’re looking for, and send you copies of everything we find. 

Why camp out at the library when we’ve already done it? 
The core of our archive was compiled by historian Chuck Hasson over the past 20 years. The archive itself is a massive collection of information – more than 30,000 clippings! We don’t have everything - but almost. 



$35 - Standard research charge for a particular topic (name, date, etc.). This fee includes up to 10 pages of articles and clippings. Some pages contain multiple articles or clippings (see samples).

$1 – additional charge per page (beginning with the 11th page).   

$5 – optional charge to burn a CD containing your information is also available. 

FREE – Standard USPS shipping charges & e-mail delivery are free.  Expedited & International shipping are available for an extra charge. 

$ TBD – Quotes are available for broader topics such as “Heavyweights”, “Championship Bouts”, “1952”, etc.). 

$20 - High-quality reprints of original boxing photos (please inquire).
