The Exhibition

The Tales from the Ring project featured an exhibition of boxing memorabilia curated by the University of Stirling Archives and the Scottish Ex-Boxers Association. Items displayed covered over a century of Scottish boxing from a pair of gloves worn at the 19o8 Olympics to a signed vest from the 2018 Women’s World Championships.

The exhibition was opened by the Principal of the University of Stirling Professor Gerry McCormack on 19 January 2020. The university welcomed members of the Scottish Ex-Boxers Association, the Sporting Memories Foundation and the wider Scottish boxing community to the library to celebrate boxing’s sporting heritage. The images on this page are from this memorable afternoon.
