The old Sydney Stadium has already been mentioned, but deserves more cover. It was a circular corrugated iron stadium built in 1908 for the Tommy Burns -v- Jack Johnson fight, the first time a black man became World Heavyweight Champion. It later had a roof put on it and was known affectionately (or otherwise) as the "Old Tin Shed." It was on New South Head Road, Rushcutters Bay near the White City Tennis Courts and Weigall Sportsground, across New South Head Road from Rushcutters Bay Park. As well as boxing it hosted visiting Rock and Roll performers such as Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and The Beatles in the 1950s and 1960s

A philistine State Government pulled it down in the early 1970s to build a railway that still runs at a loss.

The earliest one that I remember as a kid was
the Harringay Arena in North London. Although, I didn't go there as a child to watch boxing I was aware of it's connection to boxing
and nearby was the dog races in the Fifties.

Freeport Stadium was an outdoor arena used primarily for demolition and stockcar racing in the 1950's-1970's. It transformed itself several times on Saturday nites to make it a boxing venue. It was a good place to see fights with wooden bleachers that were permanent seating from the races and of course, folding chairs for ringside. The place could get rowdy and wild at times, but they held decent fights there using mainly New York and New Jersey/Philly boxers. The place closed down in mid 70's and a huge food and house supply warehouse (BJs) now stands in its place.

Freeport, Long Island is on the water on south shore of Long Island and is known for its fishing fleet and seafood restaurants, then & today. Closest venue now to that area is Nassau Colisum about 20 minutes away.

Hello, my name is Kimberly and my Great Grandfather John B. McWhorter was a champion boxer in "The Great Depression" aka Jimmy Craig. I was hoping to get some information on him and his boxing carreer. If anyone can help I would really appreciate it. I have found out he was the feather weight champion of 8 states in the years of 1927-1935-1937????

Syracuse War Memorial had some good fights. I saw Billy Backus nearly bleed to death while winning a 12 rounder there. I saw a guy begin his pro career on the same night.

I noticed that the very first post mentions Maple Leaf Stadium. That is incorrect, it was never called that. It's proper and only name was Maple Leaf Gardens.

A fine job in making this video and getting the right people in it. Bobby Cassidy was the right guy for the piece on sunnyside Gardens as I think he fought there a couple of dozens of times.

A note of interest: A couple of Veteran Ring organizations are spearheading a movement to put a plaque on the "Wendy's" Chain Store Hamburger Joint in commemeration of the site of the old Sunnyside Garden. Already in the works and approval okayed from Wendys Chain Mgmt. for allowing to use their property- a large bronze plaque that will supposedly hold the names of some of the repeat fighters that fought in Sunnyside, will be placed on Bldg or large stone on property for all to see.Date will be in 2012 hopefully.
Hopefully, though costs are prohibited with any project, a plaque might be put on many a former club or gym site throughout NY city. If your into boxing history- this will be a great thing to see if any one visits.

Thank You Henry for the fantastic Sunnyside Garden list. Great research.
Bobby Cassidy has been a longtime Norkus family friend and close by neighbor for years (including his boxing career) by living the next town over from us.
I saw many Bobby Cassidy fights in my time, and it was interesting to see the name Walter Seely named on the list, as that pairing Cassidy/Seeley, provided some fine entertainment on many a Irish fight card night.

This past December, at the Ring 8 awards luncheon (in which you were honored, Henry) I was thrilled to be seated at a table made up of Long Island fighters. Bobby Cassidy was one of them Here is a photo of Bobby and me- Dec. 2011

Dang! We're sorry that it has taken over a year to acknowledge your contribution, of providing a previous "address unknown." But it has now been made to my original post at the top of page 1 of this thread. Thank you.

In New Jersey there was a great boxing venue in Newark called the Laurel Garden.It was the top NJ BOXING CLUB.all the bic named boxers fought there.also in Newark was the Meadowbrook Bowl in the Vailsburg section.also there was the Twin City Bowel in Elizabeth.
My dad was Archie DeVino a featherweight from Newark nj.he is in the NJ Boxing HOF.He boxed from 1946-1952.he was the nj feathweight champ.his trainer was Battling Red Lambert and he was managed by the great lightweight condender Bobby Ruffin who boxed Ike Williams,Allie Stolz,Chalky Wright,Johnny Grecco,Beau Jack,Sammy Angott and many more.also managed by Vic Marsillo and the broadway producer Benny Fields.
Archie fought 14 times in Madison Sq. Garden.he beat the cuban champ and top ten ranked Luis Galvani to earn the right to box the European Feather Champ Ray Famechon in a main bout at the garden.winner was promised title bout with the great Willie Pep.Archie was tko'd in 7rds.date was dec.1,1950.the Famechon bout were was televised.dad had one more fight against Frankie Sodano on Nov.16,1951.it was also at the garden and televised.
Don Dunphy was the commentater for both bouts.Where can i find films of these fights.Bill Claytons classic fights gave me the audio on cassette of the Famechon bout.
Any help would be appreciated.
I have an extensive collection of Ring Record books and Ring magazines from the 1940's.also many glossy vintage photos.i would gladly make a copy of a fighter you are looking for.

I have a boxing card from my grandfather from "New Coliseum Athletic Club" 2614 Washington Blvd, I'm assuming it's NY as that is where he lived. The year is 1926. It has Dan W. Jones as President. Not sure if he was a promoter or just the venue operator. I'm assuming it was a venue for fights.
