About this object

This black and white photograph is of two unknown amateur boxers competing in a tournament held at the Mataura School on 8 May 1948. The tournament was organised by Constable Jim Brazier of Mataura as a community fund raiser. Brazier helped bring the Australian professional boxer, Jackie Marr to Mataura in 1947 and 1948 to fight NZ title holders. These fights and raffle sales netted enough money to buy and equip a new gym for Mataura.
