Fireworks and Boxing – Together at Last, with asbestos

I can just picture the scene now, “right lads, asbestos suits on, come on let’s be having you! Now just as we rehearsed, we will strap the live fireworks all over you.  I want a good clean fight, come out of your corners burning and try not to scorch the audience.” I would have loved to have seen this happening live, obviously long long before the days of health and safety.
