Life Magazine has produced some of the most beautiful images throughout history, and I am grateful for the collection I have archived. The black and white photography of that era is incredibly telling and I for one can stare at these pics for hours, taking in several details from the images background and just absorbing and sharing the moment. Hats off to the photographers at Life Magazine!

Archie is KO'd by Floyd Patterson for the vacant World Heavyweight Title.

Legend. One of the best work ethics in the history of the sport.

It's uncanny how he and Shane Mosely look alike in some of those images.

 And then you see a thread about Chael Sonnen trolling on twitter that gets 100 replies.  It is kinda sad.

Great stuff, thank you again OP.

Thanks guys.......great comments. I hear ya and I concur, but that is or has often been the way. I too have seen many a good thread not getting the love while some silly debate goes on for pages and pages. To be honest though, I have been pleasantly surprised at how well received these threads have been by those who do appreciate this sort of thing. Images like the ones I have been saving on my hard drive deserve to be shared and I am just happy that there are some boxing aficionados enjoying them. I've been intending to put these up for over a year, but the sizing and photobucket process had me procrastinating.

For the record, 99% of these images are in 300dpi and could easily be enlarged to 8x10 for printing and framing such as I have done with several of them for my office wall.

Joe Louis will be coming soon, and his are fantastic pictures. Thanks again!

In lieu of Ali bringing back my LIFE series back to.......um, life on his birthday, I am gonna give the others another bump, exactly one year since the last bump. That's it until next year when I do it all over again on Ali's birthday, which was actually yesterday now, when his thread was bumped.
