The History of Boxing and it's Memorabilia through the Ages
By David Bergin
The sport of Boxing has gone through several different stages, eras and rule changes throughout the years; however for the purposes of this article, boxing and the memorabilia it entails will be broken up into the two most distinct eras, the Bare-knuckle era and the Gloved era.

Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca Cola® and carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was placed on sale for 5 cents a glass at the soda fountain. Carbonated water was added to produce a drink that was at once "Delicious and Refreshing," a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca Cola is enjoyed...
