Between the Ropes at Madison Square Garden: The History of an Iconic Boxing Ring, 1925-2007
Mark Allen Baker


Inside Madison Square Garden, the City Ring was the altar of pugilism from 1925 until 2007. Hosting countless championship fights, historic main events and memorable undercards, it was center stage of boxing history. The ring now rests at the International Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota, New York-its 132 assembled pieces memorializing a key facet of 20th century American life.
