Benny Lynch, Scottish boxer, 1938. Artist: Unknown

Benny Lynch, Scottish boxer, 1938. Born in the Gorbals district of Glasgow, Lynch (1913-1946) has been described as Scotland's greatest ever boxer. Learnung his skills in carnivals in the West of Scotland during the Great Depression, Lynch won the Scottish flyweight title in 1934, before taking the British and world titles by beating England's Jackie Brown on 8 September 1935. He successfully defended his titles against Pat Palmer, the Filipino Small Montana and Peter Kane, but his hard-drinking lifestyle caused him difficulties in making the flyweight limit. In 1938 he was overweight for a rematch with Kane, although the fight, which ended in a draw, went ahead after Lynch agreed to pay a forfeit. Later the same year he beat Jackie Jurich of the United States, but had to forfeit the title for being overweight for the bout. Lynch only fought twice more, losing both times, and died aged just 33 from malnutrition after suffering from alcoholism. He won the A Churchman's Cigarettes picture card.

Jack Johnson, the first black world heavyweight boxing champion, 1908 (1951). Artist: Unknown

Jack Johnson, the first black world heavyweight boxing champion, 1908 (1951). Nicknamed the 'Galveston Giant', Jack Johnson (1878-1946) became world champion in 1908 when he defeated Canada's Tommy Burns in Sydney. There was considerable opposition to the concept of a black man being world heavyweight champion, and a succession of 'great white hopes' attempted to take the title from Johnson. In 1910 in what was billed 'the fight of the century', the former undefeated champion James J Jeffries came out of retirement to fight Johnson in Reno, Nevada. Jeffries stated I am going into this fight for the sole purpose of proving that a white man is better than a negro and the fight took place in a highly charged atmosphere of racial tension. Johnson dominated the fight, and Jeffries' corner pulled him out in the 15th round to prevent him suffering a knockout. Johnson earned $225, 000 from his victory, which sparked race riots across the United States. He held the world title until 1915, when he was defeated by Jess Willard.
