The Last Outback Boxing Troupe

 Fight Night - End of an Era

 

 

 

 

Fred Brophy’s Boxing Troupe is the last tent operating in the world. Before the early 1970’s, Traveling Boxing Tents were part of the regular landscape at most country shows. The tents have such a long tradition in Australia, that in some towns, a young man will fight in the tent, watched proudly by their grandfather and father, both of whom also fought in a tents as young men. When Fred Brophy retires, is it the end of the road for the Tent Boxing tradition.
