The main focus of the project was centred upon recording the lives of 15 former boxers, or people associated with boxing, from the East End of London. The project concluded with an exhibition at Hackney Museum. Presently, LEBA is assisting LOCOG to produce an exhibition of boxing at the London Olympics.
This website has been set up with funding directly from the Manchester Ex boxers Association. The site is considered a necessary platform on which to record the history and achievements of Manchester Boxing and its boxers. There is a fantastic story to be told and we hope you will enjoy reading these pages.
Today, the Midlands Ex-Boxers Association is more than just a club for former fighters to get together for a drink and a chat. It is a non profit making benevolent organisation, responsible for assisting not only former boxers and their families. Amateur boxing clubs are given help to purchase equipment or complete repairs to their clubs, whilst MEBA also tries to assist other charities and good causes as and when their help is required.
