Famous Fights-Past and Present was a weekly newspaper published out of London, England, from March 4, 1901 to 1904, and edited by Harold Furniss. There were a total of 156 issues of a "Police Budget" edition of the newspaper, 16 pages in each. There was also the Shurey's Edition which had 24 pages, with contents reordered.

The newspaper covered the history of bare knuckle boxing, with rare inclusions of gloved fights. It also had a regular section on leading gloved boxers of early 20th century, called "Our portrait gallery of present day pugilists."

Although the editor is listed as Harold Furniss, the actual author of the majority of the articles is clearly not him, but someone else (as Furniss was born in 1856, and the author of the articles mentions once that he had been nineteen in 1853). Based on research by John Adcock in Yesterday's Papers, the real author seems to be J. Frank Bradley, who was later the editor of The Mirror of Life and Boxing World.
