Tent Boxers

Boxing is one sport that has produced some outstanding indigenous talent such as Lionel Rose, Tony Mundine and George Bracken. One of the ways indigenous boxers were discovered was through a series of tent boxing circuses that once travelled the country.
Directed by Michael Riley, Tent Boxers tells the story of Aboriginal involvement in these tent-boxing circuses. It combines first person accounts of tent boxing life with rich archival material of the time.
