Boxing Day is celebrated in Britain, Canada, and Australia the day after Christmas. The holiday goes back to the Medieval times, and consists of giving gifts to employees, the poor, or to people in the lower social classes. Contrary to popular opinion, it has nothing to do with leftover boxes, or the sport of boxing.

Therefore, this classic boxing clip has nothing to do with Boxing Day. Still, I couldn't resist posting it. You may argue about the greatest boxers of all time -- Muhammad Ali, Joe Louis, Jack Johnson, Rocky Marciano, Larry Holmes...but this is my all-time favorite pugilistic artist.
