An archive of photographs shows the disturbing the activity of Kangaroo Boxing. This sort of spectacle is no longer condoned or practiced today but was once very popular in Australia and America. First recorded as a sport in 1891, Kangaroo boxing involved a kangaroo fighting against a human for the amusement of a crowd. Animal right groups succeeded in boycotting these events which perform ludicrous animal cruelty.
In 1933, heavyweight champion Primo Carnera fought against Jo-Jo the kangaroo in Atlantic City, America, to a seemingly eager crowd.
Jean Harvey, who was a British cruiser weight is seen fighting a light weight kangaroo, a coward act which took event around the 1930s.
