Brooklyn girlboxing … circa 1932!

Yep, girlboxing fight fans, boxing matches in Brooklyn are, it turns out, nothing new. Here’s a fabulous one from November 1932! It featured Miss “Tarzan” versus Terrible Tessy Terry. Other fighters on the card were Nancy “The Irish Demon” Clancy and “Furious Lil” Brown.

    Miss “Tarzan” was running the risk of an even bigger fight: One against a notoriously litigious Edgar Rice Burroughs.

    “Hatpin left jab?”

    As I recall, dance marathons were a craze in the era, so hopefully there was good turnout for the card.
